Anton Lundell's Player Profile

Eetu Siltanen - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 30th: "Lundellís hockey IQ is excellent; he reads plays and is just always in the right position. He is a playmaker with good hands, but has a solid wrist shot and can score when he gets a chance."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 21st: "He doesnít have the dynamic qualities of the forwards listed ahead of him on my board, and heís never going to consistently burn defenders off the rush, but heís a better passer than he normally gets credit for, heís heavier on the cycle than most of his peers, he can play through the middle of the ice and he makes decisions and reads quickly, which is just as important (if not more important) as his actual foot speed."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - Aug. 25th: "A two-way left-shot forward, Lundell (6-1, 185) can protect the puck extremely well and finds teammates in traffic. He scored 28 points (10 goals, 18 assists) and had 162 shots on goal while averaging 15:49 of ice time in 44 games in Liiga, Finland's top pro league."

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - Aug. 25th: "He is regarded as one of the best two-way players available in the draft, and he already has experience playing against men in Liiga. He has the size, smarts and skill set to play in the NHL as soon as next season."

Steve Kourmianos - The Draft Analyst - Aug. 10th: "In Lundell, theyíll be selecting a smart and mature 200-foot center with a sick wrister who excelled in Finlandís elite SM-Liiga throughout last season."

Chris Peters - ESPN - June 30th: "Lundell is one of the most mature, intelligent players on the ice in this class. After all, he has two professional seasons under his belt already, showcasing high-end vision and playmaking skills while showing a commitment to play defensively."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - June 25th: "A safe pick who has performed well in a variety of roles with peers internationally and with older players in league play."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - May 11th: "Lundell is practically plug-and-play. A big center who always makes sure he takes care of his own end, Lundell will be in the NHL for a long time."

Alex Chauvancy - The Hockey Writers - May 11th: "Thereís nothing flashy about his game, but he excels at both ends of the ice. Heís an exceptional defender and has incredible hockey IQ. His offense may lag behind some of the other top prospects in this class. But he has enough offensive upside to be a very effective two-way, second-line center in the NHL."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Apr. 8th: "The questions surrounding his offensive upside have not subsided, but there is security in a projection that heíll eventually at least be able to play effectively down in the lineup."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 1st: "A polished, two-way centre who already brings the full package. His patience with the puck allows him to distribute the puck with more efficiency. Boasts an elite brain to support his well-rounded style. "

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 20th: "The two-way left-shot forward is tough to knock off his skates on the cycle, can protect the puck extremely well and finds teammates in traffic. He had 28 points (10 goals, 18 assists) and 162 shots on goal in 44 games while averaging 15:49 of ice time in Liiga, Finland's top professional league."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 6th: "The two-way left-hand shot is tough to knock off his skates on the cycle, can protect the puck extremely well and finds teammates in traffic."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Mar. 4th: "While there may be some concerns about his offensive ceiling, Lundellís complete game makes him a safe pick if the floor is a third-line centre."
