    One of the good D coming in for the 2019 draft. Nice size at 6’2¾” and 192 lbs. From what I saw when he played against Slovakia (Hlinka Gretzky 2018), he is a good all around D. Good skater, passer, good vision and good shot. He also defend well and can lay hits.

    He is a left handed and was playing the right side.

    Produced 13 pts in 23 games in SuperElit with AIK J20. Pretty impressive at 16 years old.

    Wow, I haven’t heard of this kid until now and I wish I would have. He’s putting on a clinic out there and he looks like the best player on that Swedish team. He’s looking like he’s gonna climb that board pretty high with his overall skill set and performance so far.

    He's not just a good skater. It's high end skating ability it appears.

    It's funny in that I think skating looks to be something he could improve on in his progression. It flashes above average for sure but in a general sense. He can get good build up speed with his long and at times deceptive strides, but he can be a little too upright or need some first couple steps work in my opinion. It's not that far off, and I'm sure it'll get there.

    His anticipation skills have looked terrific the last 2 days though. He's got the points and whatnot, but his ability to cut off plays or make quick reads with and without the puck has been noticeable.

    Bro means bridge and is pronounced broo.

    Heard after his season ended that he would be heading to one of the Canadian junior leagues this season. Has not been announced yet so maybe he has changed his mind.

    Looks like he might have taken some steps in his game this summer.

    1st message here!

    For Broberg, he has been drafted by the Hamilton Bulldogs in the last CHL Euro Draft. For the moment, we don't really know what is plan for the next year. But If he comes, it will be in the OHL

    Before the Ivan Hlinka began, I saw him projected to go in the 3rd-4th round, but right now he is playing like a first rounder for sure. If he continue like that, he will rise on many list including mine.

    Putting in another strong performance.

    I stand by my statement and Button agrees - high end skating ability.

    We're way out...I know. This is a potential top 10 pick for me right now though.

    A lot of guys have wheels but never use them, Broberg, on the other hand, seems to barely need an excuse to fly up the ice

    He's been impressive offensively for sure

    Broberg looked really solid vs Canada today. He's a good player. He can skate , shoot, play physical. Likes to rush the puck. Should be a first rounder.

    Is there a reason he's all of a sudden doing so well but wasn't on the radar before?

    He played at the WHC-17 a year ago, and I had to go back and check that since I didn't remember him playing there. It doesn't seem like many knew much about him either heading into this event.

    Or has everyone just been aware that he's been doing incredibly well the last half year or so?

    His numbers in the SuperElit have rise a lot at the end of the year and he seemed to have improved a lot during the year, but no one saw him coming. He somehow really improved during the summer. Will have to wait to see how he does during the season, but if he continue playing like that, he won't wait long before hearing his name next June.

    Kid has some ridiculous tools. His IQ may be an issue. Small sample size though.

    He really struggles handling the puck in transition I find. Might limit his two-way game down the road.

    Still a huge fan tho

    Here is a shift to shift video of Philip Broberg back in March if anyone wants to watch it. It's from prospectshifts.com

    Well, he's been doing much better since switching over to AIK from Örebro, so that could have something to do with it.
