    Linus Ölund really impressed me in the SHL playoffs. Looked more like a 25 year old on the ice and playing both PP and PK. I wouldn't be too surprised if he was picked in the 2nd round this year even though he's been passed over twice before.

    So to get this thread going again:

    Who are some guys to watch for next years draft outside of the obvious ones like Dahlin, Boqvist, Lundeström, Wernblom?

    I've seen a couple of 2000's that I liked including Adam Ginning, David Gustafsson and Samuel Fagemo. I've seen Oscar Bäck too but I think his skating is really going to hold him back, unless he takes major strides forward over the summer.

    Who else is out there that could be good? How good are Jacob Olofsson, Carl Jakobsson and Filip HÃ¥llander? What about d-men Filip Hasa and Filip Johansson?

    Would anyone attempt to rank all these guys?

    Jacob Olofsson would be my top Swe forward for the 18 draft. Reminds me a bit of Alexander Wennberg. Watch out for Albin Eriksson though, he's super raw but his skillset is very impressive.

    Some names to watch aside from those mentioned. Lots of good, big body two-way forwards but also some smaller skill guys. Maybe only Olofsson is a 1st rounder of these.

    Forwards

    Jacob Olofsson, Timrå
    Linus Pettersson, Modo
    Albin Eriksson, Skellefteå
    Gabriel Seger, Brynäs
    Marcus Westfält, Brynäs
    Dennis Finn Olsson, Leksand
    Gustav Lindberg, Västerås

    Defensemen

    Fredrik Granberg, Skellefteå
    Jonathan Granström, Skellefteå
    Jakob Bondesson, Rögle
    Rasmus Sandin, Brynäs
    Martin Fehervary, Malmö
    William Fransson, HV71

    Olofsson is a big guy, 187, 87 kg. Good skating and a good shot. More of a 2-way centerman i would say. Physical player who uses his body very well to his advantage.

    Jacobsson is also a big guy with a good scoring sense.

    HÃ¥llander is a 2-way forward with strong skating and work ethic, reads the game very well, can play both C and W. He has a bigger upside in offense then these 2 above i would say.

    I also like Berggren. Small and intelligent player.

    Nässén looked good when he got to play in SHL last season. He played it very safe though, didn't make many mistakes and overall didn't make much noise at all. He showed glimpses of some nice offense as well, hopefully we get to see more of that in the upcoming season.

    Cool do you think he will play more this next year? Does he have a chance of being a regular?

    Fabian Zetterlund is my sleeper pick of the draft. Power forward with a good shot. Nicknamed Mini-Ovechkin.

    Yes, Luleå has lost a few defensemen that ate a lot of icetime and Jaros might leave for NA as well, it isn't decided yet. If Jaros leave there will be a new defenseman as replacement though, so top4 will be filled with more experienced players.

    Then we have Sandström that most likely will take the spot as 7th defenseman, which leaves two spots open for Själlin, Nässén and Grahn (and maybe Stadler and Johansson) to fight for. Judging by last season Själlin and Nässén should have the best chance to get those spots. Either way Nässén should see quite some icetime next year.

    Does anyone else think Jonathan Dahlén can make the Canucks?

    His game translates to the NHL really well.

    Dahlin and Lundestrom had awesome seasons no question about that. Isac Lundestrom from Lulea was Playing great in the games i watched Him play last season making his teammates better.

    Fagemo became the MVP in the junior 18 playoffs and had a great playoff with his intensity and eagernes to shoot.

    The players mentioned Above are all interesting players but there are more interesting players who are eligible for the 2018 draft.I was watching the swedish junior 18 Championship Play offs and was impressed by Joseph Berger who is born in december 1999 a two-way D-man from Frolunda HC He had some awesome performances in the playoffs and was playing with heart and intelligence with a combination of Smooth hands and toughness and was acting smart on the ice ....By the Way...Berger must have one of the hardest one-timer slapshots in the swedish junior leagues. I feel sorry for the players who tries to block Bergers one-timers. Joseph Berger ought to be a interesting prospect for teams who are looking for a point man on the blue-line who has the ability to create awesome things helping his team to create Scoring chances.

    Thanks for mentioning him and his brother for the fifth time in 18 posts. We'll all keep an eye on him for you.

    Joseph Berger will be interesting to keep an eye on next season.I watched him play last season in the swedish superelite junior 20 top ten series when his team Frolunda played in Orebro and in Leksand.He's got potential.

    There are many interesting players among the swedish junior players. Filip Hallander and Jacob Olofsson in Timra will also be interesting to follow.I watched them play last season and I think They will get ice time in the swedish second division Allsvenskan next season.

    In Leksand I was impressed when i watched Richard Hugg from Leksand play.
    This speedy winger has potential and combines speed with playmaking ability.

    Linus Nassen and Felix Sandstrom are looking good.
    By the Way Felix Sandstrom was awesome in the swedish SHL playoff games. He helped his team Brynas to win playoff games!

    Just realized what a perfectly inappropriate name Fagemo is if you're playing in North America. Poor guy. Can't wait to hear announcers make up some kind of Italian sounding pronunciation just to get around it.

    It's pronounced Fawgemoo.

    How is it possible that Rickard Hugg was not drafted? Was ranked high before the season and was the captain at U18 WC.

    Small + heavy feet is usually not a good combination. Many other players of a similar ilk went undrafted this year too.

    Surprised Sebastian Aho didn't get drafted before. Thirty points in fifty games is very good production in the Swedish league. Looks like a really good skater from the videos i saw on him and poised on the pick. I guess his height is why he wasn't drafted before.
