Pronman named Possler as one of the standouts of the WJC camps.

Possler went a little under the radar in this past NHL draft. He was with the Swedish under-18s two years ago, but didn't play at the WJC last season. Buffalo picked him in the fifth round, and it may end up being a good value pick. Possler played on the top line for Sweden at the camp and arguably was the main contributor of that unit.

"He's played really, really well. He's exceeded the expectations of everyone. He's not only a scorer and setting up plays for other players, but he's backchecking, he's blocking shots," said Grönborg. Possler will likely play a premier role for Sweden at the World Juniors and with his speed, skill and improving defensive game could have a good tournament.
