Samuel Fagemo Scouting Report: 2019 NHL Draft #55
A compare of Fagemo is Tyler Toffoli.
Nice! Really happy with this draft so far
It’s a bit soon to write the guy off. LOL.
Why is everyone compared to Toffoli?
Samuel Fagemo at eliteprospects.com
Easy comp, good goal scorer with skating issues.
What I'm reading says skating is one Fagemo's strengths so I don't see Toffoli as a comp. The biggest knock on Toffoli coming out of the draft was his skating.
Anyone else laughing their ass off at his last name?
Look at it this way::::
Fagemo is 1 day older than Kupari and scored 25 pts in the SHL, on the Championship Team, Frolunda.
Kupari played on finalist Karpat and scored 33 pts imn Liiga.
Not saying the skillsets and upsides are similar - they are not. Fagemo's skill level and skating are not in Kupari's class.
I am saying Fagemo is a good prospect and a great pick at #50
Skating issues? He is very fast and has great edgework. His skating is possibly his biggest strength besides his shot.
"Issues" is probably harsh, awkward might be a better word, he certainly doesn't let it hold him back though.
I like the fact he can score a goal with a slapshot. Some nice open ice hitting too. 14 goals in the SEL and another 10 points in the playoffs.
I am very intrigued by this prospect.
NO I wasn’t watching trying to bag on the guy. LOL
That’s what they wrote up about him in the link. I think they mean itv to say he’s a pretty solid scorer.
This is a good prospect! Worth moving up from 64 to 50 to get him. Good job! There's a sense of urgency to his game and he (wait for it....the new buzzword) competes well.
His skating is fine...better skater than: Toffoli or coast around the rink, zero edge work Carter.
IMO the SHL is slightly better than Liiga. Fagemo's 14 goals in 42 games looks very impressive. Kupari had 12 goals in 43 games.
Fagemo's playoff performance was also very impressive. 10 points in 16 games, 6 goals. Kupari on the other hand struggled in the playoffs for Karpat (5pts, 1 goal in 16 games) and was even scratched for a game.
I agree that Kupari is more skilled and has the higher upside, but I think Fagemo has the higher floor.
Youth team = HK Kings
You don’t say...
He looks really good.
One of the hidden gems in the draft. I really wanted the Isles to trade up and pick him.
Congratulations to you guys, I guess...
he has no skating issues
Or compare him to Bokk that was first rounder last year or lets say Kempe in his draft+1
I think Fagemo has more upside than Kempe. Damn, what a draft. Our top six future has turned around in a big way the past three years. Turcotte, Vilardi, Kupari, Anderson-Dolan, Kaliyev, Fagemo, Thomas. Add in some gems like Wagner, Grundstrom, Luff, and Iafallo and our offense looks pretty promising.
Wow, that kid really buzzes around. Looks great out there. A lot of determination and will.
He looks a lot better than Oscar Moller who many were high on.
