Nygren is in this vid alot. #32, often shooting from the bluelines.
Thanks.

Scores a goal at 2:24.

Looks to have a ridiculous shot.

I don't see age as a concern. The guy is playing in the SEL already, so as long as he's interested to come over, he should be able to spend a year or two in Hamilton to adjust. He seems to have burst onto the scene this year and most fans of his team were impressed with him. Seems like a good bottom pairing offensive guy potentially.

Though he's taller and bigger than Bergeron.

I disagree. The fact that he's 20, means we don't have to wait 4-5 years before he makes the jump imo.

Interesting choice. Anything below the second round is a risk/reward pick. If even one of the players selected after Beaulieu becomes a bonafide NHL player Timmins will have done a good job.

Rewind 5 years to the 2006 draft. Thus far, the third round of that draft has produced 6 quality NHL players (Ryan White, Cal Clutterbuck, Steve Mason, Brad Marchand, Theo Peckham, and Vladimir Zharkov). That's roughly 20 percent—all from the top half of the round. Picks 79-93 haven't produced a single quality NHL player.

The odds aren't very good that Nygren will play for the Canadiens, but I think it's a good pick for a guy that's flying under the radar.

BTW, 2006 was not a good draft year for the Habs, who picked David Fischer in Round 1 while Claude Giroux, Milan Lucic, and Clutterbuck were still available

Heard this pick on the radio and had absolutely no idea who this guy was. After checking his Allsvenkan and Elitserien stats I'm very intrigued! A very high scoring D already excelling against men. Sounds like a high reward type of pick in the 4th round! Timmins had some great euro overrage picks in the past like Grabovski and Streit so this could be a great pick once again.

From a guy that watch every single game for Farjestad:

"Nygren is a **** good offensive defenseman, but still unproven. It's easy to make one good season and even easier to make a good stretch. It's not until after the upcoming season that we can know about how good he actually is.

But... his shot is insanly good, not that hard but he always hits the target. He is pretty tough for his small body and always stands up for his teammates, but he needs to work on his defensive side of the game and not lose his positioning that often.

I'm pretty unsure whether he will be good enough to reach further than the SEL or not"

D-man who shoots R. They are rare, might explain why he was drafted so high as an overager.

If we decided to go with projects (with our 3rd pick in the 4th) why not Sth Ambroz?


meh.

I really hope Nygren can put it all together over the next 2 years. I know next to nothing about him. If he ends up being a descent 3rd pairing dman...great!

I agree. Intriguing prospect.

Are you sure that isn't Gary Busey?

Obviously, the reference is probably not very accurate, but for the swedish guys around here, is he that far from a guy like Enström at the same point during their careers ?
I know that he was a roster player with Modo, but he was picked very late and only came over in NA in 2007.
Anyway, with him and Pribyl, i like the european choices we've made.

Definitely an interesting prospect. Love his stats in the SEL for a young kid, even if he is an overager.

Hamilton next season would be nice, but I assume he'll stay in Sweden.

I don't know who to compare Nygren with really.
Enström was good but didn't really stand out as much.

Nygren joined in the middle of the season and started to produce right away. Everyone got aware of him as he was the one to prevent from shooting in the power play. Can make beautiful passes aswell.

He need to work on his strength tho.

I'd say most intriguing pickup this draft, can't wait to see what he does in a full season in the SEL. Didn't even know he was draft eligible to be honest since he is already 21. Seeing how the Habs took him so early, they felt he wouldn't last late.

From the clips I've seen, there's shades of tobias enstrom around this pick.

He looks like Engqvist a little to me.

My guess is the habs took him because they wanted him and figured there would be a bidding war on him.
