Really loved everything I read about Sundqvist leading up to the draft and had him as one of my sleepers (disclaimer: I've never watched him play). The combination of his size, projectability (given he still needs to fill out his frame), snarl, and reputation as an already disciplined and defensively responsible center is very appealing. Sundqvist also has considerable offensive upside, as evidenced by his point totals with Skellefteċ's J18 team this past season (53 in 39 GP, up from 35 in 38 GP the season before). Icing on the cake: His impressive playoff performance (10 points in 7 GP).

Profiles as the kind of prospect whose game is on the cusp of taking off -- wouldn't surprise me if he has a breakout season in 2012-2013 and even ends up cracking Skellefteċ's Elitserien roster. Less than thrilled you guys selected him.
