Swedish contingent headed to draft table

Robin Keith Thompson



The Vancouver Canucks have often selected Swedish hockey players as part of the re-stocking process for the organization. Alexander Edler, the Sedins, Mattias Ohlund are all classic examples.

The Canucks will most likely have to display a flair in the scouting department to bring in a nice catch this draft, with only one pick in the top 100 players.

I caught up with a cohort of mine, Johan Nilsson of Elite Prospects (DOT COM), to get some insight from a Swedish perspective on some of their eligible prospects headed into the draft on Friday. He had a number of good things to say about certain players. These included Calle Järnkrok from the Brynäs program, CI favourite Gabriel Landeskog and Victor Rask.

This will provide you with some information on some players before you go hunting up their stat pages (included when you click on most players' names). You can get the entire interview as the lead article on my webiste at:


Happy Draft watching hockey enthusiasts...
