Which swedish players will get drafted 2011?

Borrowing this idea from the finnish board. Lets make a list of draft eligible swedes. Just copy the list and add players to the category that suits them. Ill start:


Obvious picks:
Adam Larsson
Gabriel Landeskog
Mika Zibanejad
Jonas Brodin
Oscar Klefbom
Victor Rask
Rasmus Bengtsson
Rickard Rakell
Jeremy Boyce Rotevall
Joachim Nermark
Max Friberg
William Karlsson
Magnus Hellberg

Should get picked:
Klas Dahlbeck
Johan Sundström

Maybe gets picked:
Gustav Björklund

Good choices. One player that's not on your list is Fredik Claesson he has played almost regular in SEL in his draftyear which means he probably will be drafted.

Besides him theres just a lot of possible picks:

Ponthus Westerholm (perhaps Pathrik too)
Patrik Norén
John Norman
Victor Berglind
Niclas Burström

Anders Östberg, the swedish junior blogger likes a lot of Linköping d-men, like:

Linus Hultström
Mattias Bäckman
Albin Blomqvist
Jonathan Nielsen

Players from Swedens u-18 roster like:
Linus Fröberg
Kalle Johansson
Viktor Arvidsson
Ludwig Blomstrand
Niklas Lundström... and so on...

I guess we will be surprised come draftday, how many thought Marcus Sörensen, Joakim Nordström, Andreas Dahlström, Sebastian Owuya, Ricard Blidstrand, John Westin should be drafted in 2010, not me at least. At the same time some hyped up kids like Adam Pettersson and Victor Öhman didn't get picked at all.

What happened with these two? At the beginning of their draft year they were being touted as first rounders, but then they just fell off the map completely. Öhman seems to have played most of the year with the first team in Malmö. Anyone think he(/they) might be a late bloomer?

I wonder if Sebastian Dyk still is in the mix? Had a pretty rough season. Also Pontus Netterberg is a guy that a team could take a flyer on in the 6th or 7th round.

Pettersson didn't have the development everyone expected. He still has potential though and I surprised he didn't get picked in the later rounds. He was sort of stuck in the middle this year, not able to grab a regular spot on the SEL-team, despite a good pre-season, but was often used when there were injuries. Will probably be on loan to a SEL-2 team next season. (There's just too many forwards on Skellefteas roster atm.)
Ranked 29th among europeans with Central Scouting this year so who knows..

Sebastian Dyk has probably had a too lousy season to get drafted, stuck between a marginal role for the senior team and the junior team. Netterberg is probably worthy of a late pick, since he got some serious skill. He is a overager though and didn't get drafted last year when he put up similar numbers in Superelit.

I think some one will draft Magnus Nygren.

He is 20 but have developed very nicely this season and he have a great shot.

Montreal took him in the 4th round with the 113th pick. Good luck to him even do it is hard to wish it seeing as it is the habs.

I didn't see this thread until now, but on the Columbus Blue Jackets board I suggested some days ago that maybe they will pick goalie Anton Forsberg, and I was correct as he was drafted by them in the 7th round.

This must be one of the absolute best drafts for Sweden ever, perhaps even the best. Record in players taken, a record with four in top-10, eleven players in the first two rounds. Only 2009 might have been a tad better.

Overall it was a step in the right direction for most european countries.
From 7 players in 2010 to 10 in 2011 with four 2-rounders for Finland.
From 5 players in 2010 to 10 for Czech republic.
From 2 players in 2010 to 4 for Slovakia.
From 20 players to 28 for Sweden.
From 8 players to 9 for Russia (only 1 firstrounder this year though)

The country that had a pretty low number picked (compared to how it usually goes down) is Canada with 83 players.

He is a fantastic skater with great size and projected to be a role player. His stats are bad since he is not a fantastic offensive player and because his junior team is very deep so his role wasn't to produce points.

Seems like a odd pick, but well if he becomes a quality roleplayer in NHL then I guess it's not wasted .

Seems like a longshot to make NHL, they probably hope he will break out next season given a more important role on the team.

The positive thing about Blomstrand is that he got the right kind of size and speed to be a NHL-player.

Sounds like Janick Hansen's scouting report all over again. It also sounds like Kesler's aswell.

The Canucks Also drafted Pathrik Westerholm and have invited his brother Ponthus to their prospect developement camp that begins today. No doubt they will be trying to unite the brothers in our system. Anyone with first hand knowledge of these guys give me a better idea of what kind of pro prospects they may have? Could they eventually make it to the show? What kind of players they are? Thanks in advance.

Pathrik and Ponthus are fun players to watch and have amazing chemistry together. They doesn't really have fantastic tools and can sometimes look like nothing special. The thing about them is that they are great at keeping the puck in the offensive zone and create good chances. They play a puckpossesion game, and are pretty strong along the boards and are very smart players with good hockey sense. In some of the SEL-2 games I watch with them they really put their mark on the game.

However so far they are not fantastic in their own zone and doesn't seem to have the grit to suit as bottom-6 players in NHL. So if they make it (they are a long way away) it will be as top-6 players and do they really posses that kind of talent? The positive thing is that they developed tremendously last season and have a great development curve so far. Anyway you slice it they will be very productive players in their career, the question is just what level of league will they be able to play in.

Pathrik is a level above his brother.

Almost sound too similar to the Sedin twins.

Sure they play like a very poor mans Sedins, but are miles away from their level of talent. Most likely none of them will ever make NHL.

Any theories as to why Boyce-Rotevall didn't get drafted? It's incredible that 28 Swedes were drafted and he wasn't.
