Gabriel Carlsson's Player Profile

Goran Stubb - Director of European Scouting: "Carlsson is a tall, physically strong two-way defenseman who has improved a lot during the season. He plays a smart, cool, mature game and uses his size without being overly aggressive. A smart player who can both pass or play the puck out of danger.

Mike Morreale of NHL.com (Apr.20th): "At 6-foot-4 and 183-pounds, the left-shot defenseman plays big and smart. He's considered a stay-at-home defender with a good reach who plays a safe, reliable game that has raised his stock among scouts. He uses his size and strength in a smart way."

Bill Placzek of DraftSite.com: "Huge Swedish defender who has a heavy point shot, excellent compete level and a good grasp of reading the ensuing play. Is seldom rattled and battles hard in his end. Makes that transition first pass. His skating needs to continue improving so he can better maintain gap control. His backward mobility and forward acceleration need refinement."
