Agreed a natural gifted goal scorer is something that goes beyond simply just shooting a lot of pucks and practice..

Jeremy Williams for example has a talent and scores goals at all levels because of his hard and accurate shot and ability to find seams in the defense to go to in order to get those scoring opportunities..

Viktor Stalberg is an exciting Leaf prospect because he is big and strong and has NHL elite skating ability already.. He has also been able to score at previous levels ..

Last season at Vermont Stalberg scored 24 goals and 46 points in 39 NCAA games .. Back in 2005-06 just before he came over to NA play in the USA he put up 27 goals and 53 points with the Frölunda Indians J20 league in Sweden.. So its going to be interesting to see the type of offense he can produce at the pro level, but he has all the tools and history to be successful.
