Nice !! Great signing there !! Adding depth to the center position is never a bad thing. Considering all his qualities, he has good chance to crack an NHL line-up one day, me think !!

improve intensity.

  • Andreas Engqvist (F) in position 90 (31GP 9G 7A);
  • David Rundblad (D) had 10A in 45 GP; He was picked up in 17th (just before Leblanc) by St-Louis (ranked first NHL organization in Hockeysfuture.com);
  • Marcus Johansson had 5G and 5A in 45 GP; He was pick number 24 in the last draft by the Capitals;

Engqvist is a year older so he is not part of the U20 list of the elite league but all these stats come from he same league.

This contract is free. No draft and furthermore, he was here in the development camp...
Wow This is good to know. I feel bit more confident now.

But for now let's keep it as an interesting project.

He certainly help his own when you compare his stats with Magnus Pääjärvi-Svensson. Had he played 50 games, he would have 50% more points than him.

But he is also older than Magnus (two or three years) but at 21 and 6'3", he can certainly continue to evolve.
His first year (2006-7) in Djurgården he did 4 points, the following year, he did 12 points and last year, he would have done 26 points if he played 51 games.
So there is certainly evolution there and he has not reached his ceiling.
Also he was in the swedish team for the last two years. And was in the U20 and U19 in the two previous year.

Certainly a project. A two-way player. Let's see next year.
Common Hank Zetterberg 2.0!

I fixed it for you.

Engqvist is 3-4 years older than the players you mention, Engqvist is still promising but your comparisons isn't so good. Anyway, I could see Engqvist score +35p in SEL this year, which would be great.

I find it a little strange that they say he works well in traffic but needs to improve on his intensity. Usually, those two characteristics go hand in hand.

Anyways, this scouting reports sounds alot like Viktor Kozlov.

Engqvist might as well be considered an 88. He's a late December boy.

I know, but then you could consider Rundblad and Johansson as 91 aswell.

Was he born in a manger? Was he scouted by three kings?

Probably the 3rd best league in the world behind the KHL and NHL. Also of note Enqvist played on the 07 Sweden WJC u-20 team.
