Another good Swedish wing with soft hands, quick stick, and slick moves. Confident in is game and dominate on the power play. Displays swagger, great vision, excellent touch, and a strong release, besides the high hockey IQ to direct traffic in his defensive zone. Has good jump and a powerful stride. Didn't get a big role or minutes during the World Junior Tournament, but took advantage of the ice he got to show his potential. He had six shots on goal and averaged 9:12 of ice time in four games for Sweden at the 2021 WJT U-20, and his year in Sweden started with 14 goals and 27 points in 16 junior games, then he was loaned to Södertäje in Allsvenskan, and had 3 goals (6 points in 9 contents there, which was similar to his World Junior where he looked good, and then invisible. Has good tools, sets up plays and has a nose for the net when he is consistent, engaged and competing hard. Granted, he was a much more inconsistent player, but he is now on an upward trajectory. It remains to be seen if he holds the scout's view asa first round selection.
