Timothy Liljegren's Player ProfileJeff Marek of Sportsnet - Mar. 8th: "A strong Five Nations Tournament alleviated all fears that his game was slipping. For most teams he is the best defenceman in this year's draft."
ISS Hockey - Mar. 7th: "Elite skater both in terms of speed & agility. Played well at 5-Nations, finishing 2nd in shots"
ISS Hockey - Feb. 3rd: "Offensively creative defender. Recently returned after bout w/mono and scored his 1st goal."
Mike Morreale NHL.com - Jan. 20th: "Liljegren (6-0, 191) missed two months because of mononucleosis earlier in the season but is a solid prospect with great upside. He's calm, smart and creative, and can move the puck with authority."
Future Considerations: "An active, offensive-minded rearguard who likes the puck on his stick…skates with strong fluidity and agility, getting from one point to the next effortlessly as his feet always seem to be in motion…can take the puck end-to-end a la Erik Karlsson…his offensive IQ is off the charts as is his creativity…makes strong breakout passes to move along the attack to his forwards before jumping into the play himself…has a strong wrist shot that is quick off his blade, strong and accurate, and he gets some solid velocity on his slap shot"
Dennis Schellenberg Hockey Prospectus - Nov. 9th: "Very strong and matured puckmoving skills, delivers at both ends of the ice, has a booming shot and competes real hard in his own zone. A leader on the blue line who is competing against men in Sweden for the second season."
