Rasmus Dahlin's Player Profile

Dan Marr - Director of NHL Central Scouting: "Dahlin has the skating, skills and elite hockey sense that can dictate the style of play and the pace of a game with or without the puck. He finds ways to contribute in all situations, is ultra-competitive and a high-character person who leads by example."

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - April 30: "Dahlin is the unquestioned best player available in the 2018 draft class. His offensive instincts are first-rate, and at 6-foot-2, 181 pounds, he's not afraid to play physically if needed."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - April 30: "The one player in the 2018 draft class who is considered a generational talent, because of his skating, puck-handling, vision and intelligence."

Craig Button - TSN - April 28: "Franchise defining blueliner who very well may be the best defenceman entering the draft since Denis Potvin in 1973."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - April 28: "He’s a one-man band and has essentially made this draft a 2-31 affair."

Steve Kournianos - SportingNews/The Draft Analys - April 28: "An electrifying defenseman with ankle-breaking moves, Dahlin is ready to show the NHL what he's made of. He's been called the Swedish Bobby Orr, but Dahlin's passing ability and puck control techniques are quite unique for a defender from any era."

Cam Robinson - DobberProspects - April 26: "Effortless skating mixed with size, smarts, and dangles that would make Pavel Datsyuk nod in approval. He’s the entire package and has all the tools to become a game-changing pillar for an organization."
