Anton Lundell's Player Profile

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."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Feb. 5th: "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 - Feb. 5th: "Back in action after a lengthy layoff and displaying the two-way game that made him a top-10 fixture in previous rankings."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Jan. 29th: "The team drafting him will get about as close to a readymade top-line center. He will be able to affect the game at both ends of the ice almost immediately. He likely wonít have to go through the usual stint on the wing that many young centers have to go through in the NHL because of how mature his game is already."

Brock Otten - McKeen's Hockey - Jan. 21st: "The late 2001 born Lundell missed the WJCís with an injury but has played very well in Liiga action and is a strong two-way playmaker with untapped offensive upside."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 4th: "Displays an excellent two-way game, but how much offensive upside is there? Due to an upper-body injury, heís questionable to play in the world juniors."

Will Scouch - Scouching.ca - Nov. 19th: "Anton Lundell might not have a massive ceiling, but he could be a fantastic two-way centre who may not get fans out of their seats often, but he could be a person hockey nerds and coaches alike love."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Nov. 10th: "Big pivot already has a WJC gold. Lundell can handle playing top competition and possesses excellent hockey sense."

Jokke Nevalainen -Dobber Prospects - Nov. 4th: "Heís a true team player with great effort level on the ice. He is a playmaker who can control the pace of the game but he also owns a dangerous wrist shot. Skating is his one weakness but even that has been getting better."

Tony Ferrari -Wings Nation - Nov. 4th: "Lundellís shot is electric. He has a quick release and can get it off effortlessly in stride. He has great hands in tight and excels in the cycle game. His defensive play is what bumps him into the upper tiers of this draft class, however."

Scott Wheeler -The Athletic - Nov. 4th: "There has often been a perception that Lundellís early pro success (he had 19 points in 38 games in Liiga last year) was driven by his October 2001 birthdate (Lundell was weeks away from being eligible for the 2019 draft)."

Chris Peters -ESPN - Oct. 22nd: "Lundell has good size and excellent instincts, and he can get up and down the ice really well. He's more of a north-south center and lacks a dynamic skill element in his game, which could cause him to slip in the first round."

Corey Pronman -The Athletic - Oct. 15th: "Lundell is a very smart center who makes plays and has an efficient game. Heís a bit divisive among NHL scouts, though, because heís an average skater and lacks standout offensive skills."

Sam Cosentino -Sportsnet - Oct. 2nd: "Putting up numbers in the Liiga has proven to be a good indicator of future success."

Bob McKenzie -TSN - Sept. 16th: "The big, solid 6-foot-1 Finnish centre plays a strong two-way game, but scouts wonder if thereís a drop off in high-end skill after the top eight picks. Lundell is not without skill."
