From an old Central Scouting Report on Lundmark:
A very good skater with quick acceleration. Very solid on his skates and has tremendous balance and mobility. Displays exceptional lateral movement when skating with the puck and is outstanding in one-on-one situations has great vision and uses his teammates very well.. is very adept at making short passes in tight quarters.. has a very accurate wrist shot with a quick release and is a threat to score from anywhere in the offensive zone.. also possesses a good, hard slap shot.. is able to control the play in the offensive zone .. a feisty competitor who does not show any fear.. willing to work through any adversity .. relishes the pressure of being a "go-to guy" .. is not overly physical but is capable of delivering the big hit.. often logs an enormous amount of ice time.
Good solid skater with good speed, balance and agility... Very good accurate shot with quick release... Scores big goals... Very smart and creative... Intense and stands his ground... Mentally tough... Showed in rookie WHL season that he could not be intimidated... Willing to drop the gloves and fight.
Now, as I posted in other Threads - this was the player I remember watching in Junior Hockey. This is not the player I've been watching in New York - whether he plays 8 minutes or 20. I've always liked Lundmark - however he is not even close to resembling the player he used to be - even in glimpses. This is a kid that I saw play probably over 75 times from '98-00.
Hopefully, he can find his confidence - develop his skills and become the player everyone thought he would be. I remember Al Coates on draft day nearly threw up on the table when he saw Lundmark was available with the pick he traded (9th overall).
