He's like a mix of Backstrom and Jarnkrok(who is his cousin). They all play their own game but there are striking similarities between them. Strong skater, two-way player, high hockey sense, pass-first, plays feisty. Average frame, but pretty advanced for his age(6'0", 192lbs as of now). Will he be 4th overall? We'll see about that, but heading into his draft season he compares very well to Nick. Just a really smart center with intangibles and first line upside. To me he's the best Swedish center prospect since Backstrom.
