2019 NHL Draft Scouting Reports: Prospects 81-90 - Last Word on Hockey
He doesnt look bad
I like this pick better than the previous one. Good skater, not too much to the rest of his game yet but he can skate.
Possibly a product of the European combine.
1 year and a half older than Struble
Looking at the scouting report, another mobile D-Man who is capable in his zone and good in the attacking zone. Played pretty well when promoted last year looking at the numbers.
Seeing Zach Jones go two picks later was hard to see
True but he's already playing pro hockey.
He is a great skater, 2-way, decent IQ, vanilla. I don't see top3D upside.
Pronman had him ranked 50. Gave High grades for Skating and Hockey Sense. Above Average Puck Skills.
A quote ‘’ D-man Mattias Norlinder is a definite option for the #55 pick. Erik Ohlsson from Elite Prospects describes Norlinder as a “Great skater with good offensive instincts, has a great first pass and a good shot from the point”. Playing for MODO Hockey J20 in the Super Elit, Norlinder had 5 goals and 16 assists in 30 games. ‘’
Some quotes via Elite Prospects:
"Norlinder often makes plays through defenders and has the vision to execute tough passes"., Corey Pronman - The Athletic2019
"He is both quick and fast. He can win races to loose pucks and he can skate well over long distances to help create zone entries", McKeen's Hockey 2019
"With his excellent vision and awareness, he finds partners with great deceptive pass", Future Considerations 2019
"He creates space for himself on the blueline by flawless lateral movement to find an open lane to shoot or find a pass.", Hockeyprospect.com 2019
Bad day at the office!!!
So scouts from elite prospects thinks it’s a good pick,
You and several hfboards members here don’t,
I mean do you guys even know who they are before bitching???
Trade Was pretty bad! Maybe the Guy can play, but certainly not the guy we waited...him or the fairbrother Guy!!!
How many times have you seen them play?
None! It was not players i was looking for!! So i cant prefer other player than struble, norlinder and fairbrother?
That was not What i wished for my team today!!!
Pure stat watching but this kid had 6 pts in 14 games in the Allsvenskan against men... that’s pretty impressive
I'll take "things that never happened, not even once", for 100 Alex.
Are we drafting for need??? Or is it just a coincidence that the last 3 BPA's when we picked were left D's???
I don't like this...
He's invited to the summer camp for team Sweden
Not a bad trade, but one you didn't like. Not the same thing.
The scouting reports are great but he's a year older than most players in the draft. Hopefully that means he's a rising star and not just a product of being a little older and a little stronger than his draft peers.
