He'd be the first Dane to be drafted out of the QMJHL right? Morten Madsen was drafted out of Sweden I believe. And so far only the Nicklas Jensen og Mikkel Boedker was drafted out of the CHL - and that's was from the OHL. Right?
You are correct Although we have to count in Olly aswell, he was afterall just drafted out of the WHL Morten and Jannik both went to the CHL after they were drafted.

So taking that into account, strength is probably not gonna be a huge issue, even if he's a smaller guy. I'm not sure about his defensive play, of course he didn't play PK in the NLA. But he did play PK in junior, and I know he scored several SH goals last year. I know the skill depth isn't that great in the swiss junior league, but you still need skill and awareness to be able to make takeaways while on the PK. And I assume the Mooseheads has done their homework, and they wouldn't put so much stock in him playing center if they didn't know he would be able to do it.
I guess that's true.. never knew he had scored a few shorties, always good to know

Yeah, im guessing Halifax knows what they are doing, anywho itl be nice to finally get to see more of him
