Just so you guys get a somewhat insight on him. He plays for Leksand, same club that Filip Forsberg and Oliver Ekman-Larsson played for in Sweden. Both above transitioned straight to NHL from the SHL-2(SEL-2).

Stats (comparing same age stats):
Filip Forsberg 43ga 8g 9a 17p
De La Rose 38ga 6g 6a 12p

Height / weight as of right now, De La Rose is younger than Forsberg:
Forsberg 186 cm / 6'1" 85 kg / 187 lbs
De La Rose 188 cm / 6'2" 86 kg / 190 lbs

Both have been captains for the Swedish U-18 team
Both won the "Allsvenskan Most Points by U18 Junior" for most points in SHL-2 (SEL-2)

He definitely hustles and likes contact. Surprisingly fast for a guy his size.

We just got a LOT BIGGER and TOUGHER with this draft. Sign of things to come.

Would have taken Zykov though purely on talent, but obviously the Russian factor is rearing its head.

The only thing he can do is surprise us and make us eat crow in due time. But he's the pick I'm more hesitant to like....let's call it that way.

Love this pick,that who I wanted, great size, great protection skills and stick handling, great speed and intensity. He might lack a bit of scoring touch but that might just be a impression because he plays against old and stronger competition. Worst case he great will be a great top 9.

Interesting how with our first two picks we went with two swing for the fences picks. Complete opposite of last year.

I like De La Rose a lot. He will fit on this team nicely. But...as a grinder?

I dont mind this pick. Would i have liked Zykov? Yeah, but i still think this is a solid pick. You never know what these players could become in a few years. He has the tools to be successful, and some size on him.

The Lehkonen pick makes me feel a lot better about this one.

I personally like the pick. I can see the upside to his play, and a safe bet due to his solid defensive play.

Just like maccarron, give him a couple years, and add Fucale! Go Moose Go!

Amusing that only one of our bottom 6 players were drafted by the Habs vs 4 in our top6.

Repeat a lie often enough and people are going to believe it.

Looks like he is going to be very tough to play against in any role. He's not done growing at 6'2 and will fill out. Have you noticed how fast he can get to top speed while being involed in the play? Just have seen clips and am no expert, but his constant "rubber necking" is more more than a good sign. His hands are not bad and they may catch up to his legs skill wise.

I was keen on De La Rosa but fell off a bit as other big, physical guys seemed to have more upside offensively. So I am good here. LOL everybody talking about the guys as 3rd liners. Sure, they could, because they have size and play physically, any big guy who plays physically could be a 3rd liner. Safe picks that way. However, if they have some offense you get very effective 25 goal guys who can play top 6.
