Adam Boqvist's Player Profile

Goran Stubb - European Scouting Services: "Boqvist is a finesse defenseman who is very skilled, possesses excellent vision and tons of talent. He is fun to watch and full of surprises on the ice. He often plays bigger than his size and skated in his first games with Sweden’s senior national team in April."

Craig Button - TSN - May 1: "Button voices some concern about Adam Boqvist's ability to play when he's challenged by better players, and admits he has Boqvist below the group of Quinn Hughes, Evan Bouchard, and Noah Dobson in his rankings."

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - April 30: "The right-shot defenseman has the skills and size of another Sweden-born defenseman, Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators. Like Karlsson, Boqvist likely will need another season in Sweden to prove himself in the SHL, but then should add a high-end puck-moving piece."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - April 30: "Boqvist (5-11, 168) is a skilled right-shot defenseman with excellent vision and on-ice awareness with a very good understanding of the game. He is a finesse-type player, but at times has shown a willingness to play a bigger game."

Craig Button - TSN - April 28: "He brings skill, creativity and daring from the blue line."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - April 28: "Much is made about the new-age defenceman and no doubt he fits that bill, but it’s his goal scoring ability that separates him from the crowd."

Steve Kournianos - SportingNews/The Draft Analys - April 28: "A lightning-quick puck rusher with a blistering shot, Boqvist has drawn comparisons to Erik Karlsson. He was too dominant for Sweden's top junior league, and his quick-strike mentality should present him with plenty of chances to create offense in today's up-tempo NHL."

Cam Robinson - DobberProspects - April 26: "Dynamic puck skills, terrific vision, high-end quickness, top speed, smarts, and a heavy shot. His late birthday means he is just a month away from being eligible for the 2019 class further illustrating how massive his potential is. Has a big shot and loves to unload it."
