It really depends on your definition of "reach". Bob McKenzie's list is I believe an average ranking taken from 10 NHL scouts and Hampus was at #15 on his final list. Most publications had him around 10-17 mostly that I saw. We don't really have any other ways of finding out NHL scouts opinions other than rumors or if they say it directly and as far as I know there haven't been quotes from other NHL scouts saying they had Hampus in their top 5 prospects.
Anyways, not like that should matter anyways. If he was a reach or not at the time has no bearing on anything...he sure looks great so far. I was hoping he'd fall to the Hawks at 18 but never expected him to go that high. However, he certainly looks like he was worth it.
