Håkan pick.

Quote:
“He really has talent with the puck,” said Andersson, who was also responsible for taking Henrik Zetterberg in the seventh round back in 1999. “His best skills are his hockey sense and his hands.”

“He was a little too good for the league,” Andersson said. “If he lost the puck, he’d just chase after it and win it back. He did what he wanted to do.”

“In my book, he works hard,” Andersson said. “That’s a really good sign.”

Yep, he's tiny. 6'2 148 pounds. This has to be one of the 4 year projects that Holland and Co. were talking about.

148? that must be outdated because nhl.com is saying 165.

I just looked at Elite Prospects so there's a good chance it is.

Sounds about right.

Anyone know where he is playing next year? SEL, Allsvenskan, J20?

I think I'll add him. If he accepts, assuming it's him, we'll have some idea of where he's playing/how he's doing.

Probably J20. He had good stats in J18 Elit which is the top tier before New Year's. After New Year's J18 Allsvenskan is the highest level which his team wasn't good enough for.

Well he is only 168 pounds. Maybe he'll hit a growth spurt & finish at 6'4.

should get some games in division I too if good enough.

although i wouldn't be surprised to see hakan trying to find a try-out with a bigger club for him.

Nothing cheers me up like Hakan Andersson using the 7th round pick on an unranked player from a Swedish third tier youth club.

Man do I hope Wallmark sucks more than I thought when this guy was taken instead of him, and I'm a fan of the team he will play for next season.
