Bertilsson was ranked 17th overall among European defensemen.

"We liked Simon," Holmgren said. "He's a hard-nosed kid. He is really good with the puck. We like him a lot."

Bertilsson was predicted to go earlier in the draft, according to some reports.

"You never know. It's hard to trust those ranking," Holmgren said. "Every team is different in how they view players. We were ecstatic to get him."
