This years Euro Offensive D-Man?????

There seems to be almost every year a real young dman in europe somewhere that lights up the league in scoring. Players like Rundblad and Vatanen in the past few years scored a ton of points and recieved different awards overseas for their play. I was wondering who will be this years offensive dman stud playing in Europe?

I think Ristolainen is the top guy.

Edit: Never mind, thought you were asking about the draft.

No really dominating offensive defensemen in Sweden this year, even though Habs prospect Nygren is putting up some good numbers and Sens' Wikstrand as well.

Oscar Fantenberg is another one that should be sought-after for next season, still very young and has really been having a breakout year.

Yeah, Oscar Fantenberg has been a surprise for HV71 in the SEL thus far, and was given a spot on Team Sweden in Karjala Cup recently. He's 20 though and undrafted, but if he keeps it up I don't think there's any doubt that a few NHL clubs will offer him a 2-way deal next summer.

Magnus Nygren(Habs/SEL): 22 games, 6+9
Mikael Wikstrand(Sens/SEL2): 21 games, 9+6

No unreal performances, but those are good offensive starts in Sweden.

I know Nygren will never be a complete player, but is he still nothing but a walking slapshot or does he have more to his game now?

He plays 22 minutes per game and some PK too, so yeah. A big step forward I'd say. I think he at least deserves an ELC.

Nygren has taken a massive step defensively. He has put on 6-8(can't remember exactly) kilos this summer and has worked alot on all aspects of his defensive play. He even did an open ice hit in the first games of the season, which surprised everyone lol.
He's not as lost in the own half of the rink anymore.

Very big step this year.

Wikstrand is one goal away from breaking OEL's record for most goals scored all-time in SEL2

Teemu Eronen has slowly and quietly developed into a very good offensive D. Sometimes I've watched a Jokerit game and be like, wow, what a nice play by Erik Karlsson, and then realize it wasn't Karlsson but Eronen (not saying by any means that Eronen is as good as Karlsson, lol). I don't know if he's got much NHL potential, but who knows. He's playing in the men's national team right now and he's been doing very well.

Kristian Näkyvä is another very skilled young offensive D from Finland, but he's not quite as well rounded as Eronen.

Nikita Zadorov, playing for the London Knights definitely has first round potential. But he's not an offensive dman.
