Fredrik Forsberg's Player Profile

Fredrik Forsberg is one of the rare gems in this year's draft, and the younger brother of NHL player Filip Forsberg. Like Jordan Subban, he is smaller in stature than his older sibling; that being said, when you watch him play, he makes a bigger impact on the ice than his brother did, at that level. He has played at every level of the Swedish leagues, being successful against some of Sweden's toughest in the SHL (arguably the second best hockey league worldwide) and SuperElit leagues.

He plays huge for his team every time he is on the ice, making an impact on the outcome of the game with his skating and hands that make it look like he has the puck on a string. He is a legitimate, noticable game-changer. He has great character, on the ice and in the locker room, and is a player that teammates love to have on their side. The opposition finds him frustrating to play against because of the way he can get deep and use his teammates to create scoring chances.

His Assets Include:
  • Elite Level Vision; High Hockey IQ
  • Maturity with the Puck
  • Pro Level Athletic Agility, Conditioned in the SHL
  • Gifted Skating Ability
  • The Hands to Quarterback Plays

  • What He Has To Work On:
  • Strength & Physical Play
  • Neutral Zone Work; Playing without the Puck

  • Pro Comparables: Filip Forsberg, Jason Spezza, Claude Giroux, [Old-Timer] Stan Mikita
