The next Oliver Ekman-Larsson?

I do not enjoy making these threads and putting pressure on draft eligible kids but just for arguments sake, Is there any prospect who comes close to OEL's game?

Havenīt followed him much in the AHL this year, but Hampus Lindholm has some similarities to his game (good skater, smart player with some skills) and even more than OEL he is pretty much flying under the radar so far even if he was drafted 6th overall.

Might not become quite as good as OEL, but I really like his game and think he could become an impact player in the NHL.

It's one of the players that the scouts were comparing him to at the draft. He looked pretty good down there, but it's too early to tell if he'll reach the levels that OEL has.

He was the first one to come to mind, I heard people saying that ristolainen has SOME similarities and could have a similar impact in the NHL. I like Ristolainen and believe he is one of the best Defensive prospects for the next draft.

I disagree, theodore reminds me a bit more of Karlsson rather than OEL, he is more one dimensional, and not physically as mature as OEL, theodore is also a more aggressive and reckless player compared to OEL. As mentioned I believe he is more in the Karlsson/tobi enstrom mold.

Hampus Lindholm has the "fluidity" to his game, but I don't think he has the puck skills at that level. Defensively they could probably be labeled similar.
