    "Mathias Emilio Pettersen, a Univ. of Denver commit, was one of the 16 prospects to participate in the #Habs combine in Sweden."

    Anyone know something about him other than what is available online?

    46 points in 60 games in the USHL this year.

    He's a mini YouTube sensation from 2010. 10 year old skating circles around his age group in Norway. It's set to music too. Tom Cochran's Big League.

    All grown up now. Should get drafted, but if not, it's a good connection to have for later.

    He was expected to have a better season then he did, but he didn't have a terrible season either and improved over the year.

    Small, talented, doesn't make that talent work for him consistently into production. He's a typical late round gamble with skill. He's a good player to keep an eye on as the draft tapers down.

    This draft sucks from Rounds 4-7. He’s one of a few players with some talent in that range that could benefit playing in the NCAA.

    Agreed. High degree of probability he goes before top 10. Habs, Wings, Blackhawks are my picks for teams to take him. However, I think there is still a small chance Kotkaniemi is a 8-12 range pick. I won't be surprised if he reaches 10, 11, 12

    If we're going to grab him with our 6th, why not.

    We don't have a 6th, but we have two 5ths.

    haha... You can use your imagination and I won't be surprised it's tilted on the negative side of things. ;).

    Sens should move back. Then give up their 1st. I wonder if they could do that?

    Trade #4 for #11 and #12. Give Colorado the 12th pick.

    Both should get good players there and everyone can move on. Doubt NYI wants to do that.

    They can't do that. If they trade the pick, it's theirs regardless and next year's pick goes to Colorado.

    Actually, we have 3 4th and 1 5th.

    Still wouldn't mind him with that 5th.

    Can you break it down value wise, from your perspective?

    Ultimately my plan would be to take Zadina at 3, and then trade Pacioretty for a C- and that could be a pick in the 8-12 range and try and get Kotkaniemi in that way. Even if we miss out on Kotkaniemi, we can fall back on Hayton. As well, I expect us to be in the lottery next year so can try and get a C there as well.

    I really doubt you'll find a suitor for Pacioretty in the top 10.
