Rasmus Dahlin's Player Profile

Kevin Wickersham My NHL Trade Rumors - Aug. 12th: "Currently 6-2, 181-pounds hes considered a franchise-changer by some, with comparisons to fellow countryman Erik Karlsson. Several scouts saying hes further along at his age than Karlsson when 17. Hes hockey-smart, a fast, fluid skater and puck-handler with skilled hands. He lends a physical presence, offensive intuition off the charts, and a wicked shot. Solid on defensive end with some room to develop in terms of positioning."

Rory Boylen Sportsnet - July 10th: Ive never seen a player like him in that you give him a couple of chances and shifts at a higher level and he can easily adapt to that level, Sweden national junior team coach Tomas Monten told NHL.com. He has a certain way of pushing his game against better players and at higher speeds. Hes skilled and talented and a defenceman we can have a lot of use for. A couple years down the road, for sure, hes going to be a good player.

Corey Pronman ESPN - June 25th: "In isolated moments, Dahlin was one of the most dynamic players in the SHL at the age of 16 this past season. His skating, puck skills and particularly his offensive IQ all get elite grades. He looks special when he has the puck, playing at a pace beyond his age, with the tools to make difficult moves seem routine. "

Mike Morreale NHL.com - June 24th: "Dahlin, 17, didn't see a lot of ice time at the 2017 WJC, but he did have one goal and one assist in seven games after earning a spot on the team ahead of two players taken in the first round of the 2017 draft: Erik Brannstrom, who was selected No. 15 by the Vegas Golden Knights, and Timothy Liljegren, who went No. 17 to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"He's a smart, two-way defenseman; an excellent skater and puck-handler," said Goran Stubb, NHL director of European scouting. "He loves to join the rush and does not shy away from the physical part of the game. He needs to learn to play it more simple, and he will."
