Prospect Jeppe Vinther (2015 draft)
 
Jeppe Vinther is probably one of the brightest Danish D prospects at the moment. Although he is still young, and it's far from sure that he will turn out, I still thought we should have a thread about him.

He turned 16 just over a month ago. And this season he has already made himself a part of the U18 national team and a part of Frederikshavn AL-Bank ligaen team, where he has so far played 9 games, with 9 points though.

The nearest comparable as far as merit goes is probably Philip Larsen, who at the same age didn't make Esbjergs AL-Bank ligaen team. Although he played Allsvenskan the year afterwards.

Since I am in Canada this year, I haven't had a chance to watch AL-Bank ligaen, so if someone who has watched him play could give a few insights, it would be greatly appreciated.

Got the chance to watch him play when the White Hawks visited Sønderjyske. Both teams played very sound defensively, White Hawks limiting Sønderjyske to only 20 shots, of which 1 found the net for the only goal of the game. I didn't focus that much on Jeppe Vinther, since seeing an NHL'er in action in the AL-Bank-Liga was occupying me a bit more, but from what I recall seeing of Vinther, he did well, no big mistakes. Wasn't on the ice when Sønderjyske scored on the Power Play.

I have been impressed with his development the last couple of years, and he is clearly establishing himself as one of the interesting 1996 born players. When that is said, I must add that I still think Matias Lassen, Rødovre is the most talented defender from that birth year.
I would rather put the label ”new Philip Larsen” on another D-prospect; Morten Jensen, Esbjerg. He is even from the same town as Philip Larsen, and has for a long time been standing out as a very special talent.

Haven't seen Vinther - but I have seen Mathias Lassen a couple of times. He's good. Still trying to minimize the number of mistakes, he has shown some upside in terms of skating and hockey sense. Nice we finally have some d-men coming up to get exited about :)

To put perspective on the whole Philip Larsen-thing... Wasn't the league at a higher level back when he was in Esbjerg? My gut feeling is that young guys have a shorter path to the AL-Bank-ligaen today.

I know this kid is not a D-man, but his numbers are very impressive for his age:

Good for his development that he goes to Sweden, but it's not one of the usual Swedish clubs for Danish prospects.

To bad
 
He will never se daylight again.

Hockeyfrilla 06-03-2013 12:18 PM

Good enough for J20?

That was my first thought too :D

Why's that?

Well, he is one of our biggest D talent's and he has played in the Danish pro mens league, but he is young, and wont be draft eligable untill 2015.

Im thinking J18 too start off with.

But Luleå had this too say:

“En skridskoskicklig back som dessutom har en väldigt bra speluppfattning. Vi är mycket nöjda över rekryteringen av Jeppe”

I think it is merely a reference to the geographical localtion of Luleå being north of the poalr circle and all :)

I feel silly for asking now :laugh:

Jevo 06-03-2013 07:56 PM

Good for him. Hopefully it will be a successful stay, Denmark needs great defenders.

So it really sounds like he is a "Philip Larsen type" of player. Great that we started to both produce skilled defenders, and also some more heavyweights like the Lauridsen brothers.

A shame for both sides. But it's not always easy to move away from home at such a young age, and not everyone can deal with it. Hopefully he'll rebound back in Denmark.

Justinov 09-26-2013 12:23 PM

Ay least he pulled out in time, when seeing it wasn't working for him; because had he stayed and then had to go through a long dark winter, then it could have been depressingly tough for him.

Justinov 10-01-2013 12:09 PM

Apparently Jeppe Vinther hit an obstacle in Luleå - not on the ice but on the school-bench. Especially sociology and Swedish history. Apparently is made him lose his passion for hockey, so he has returned to Denmark to find his passion again.

Det fungerede bare slet ikke med skolen. Linjen, jeg var på, havde meget omkring især samfundsfag og svensk historie, og der kom jeg virkelig til kort – desværre

Do we have any news on Jeppe? I mean after he came back to Denmark, what's the deal with him now? I have to be honest, I have not really followed the Danish league much this year. SO id like a 4-1-0 on him.

Will he try his luck again next season, to maybe improve his draft stock for 2015?
