NHL Draft 2015: Joel Eriksson Ek

Recommended Posts

Latest player to get a promotion in the CSS preliminaries, and rightly so.
Meet Joel Eriksson Ek.


He could be a late-first round pick, or second round sleeper.

  • Has creative hands as well as a pro shot
  • Skates very well, creates chances on the forecheck just by outskating the opposition
  • Has already taken a leadership role on the Farjestad SuperElit team
  • Great hockey bloodlines, no confidence issues.
  • Good hockey sense; I would call him a two way forward, but, in all honesty, he's better offensively. An offensively dominant center who is responsible in his own end. <- I like this one.
    Never has a [+/-] issue, even though that is an overrated stat, it reflects upon his play.
  • Great work ethic - he wants to be a hockey player, he wants to be the best player on the ice, and that shows up every time he laces the skates or goes out for a training session.
  • Decent size for a center: 6'2, 186lbs
  • Will take penalties, but only opportune ones (doesn't take 'stupid' penalties).
    He wants to win, but when he's frustrated he's frustrated

Sizey, offensively dominant, keeps opponents at bay in his own end.

Annoying to play against, love to have on the team.

Whoever gets this kid will be one lucky team because his upside is endless.
