Anton Lundell's Player Profile

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."

Craig Button -TSN - Sept. 16th: "Very sound two-way centre who makes the plays in all three zones. He has a competitiveness and determination that helps him find advantages in all areas. Not flashy, but very effective."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "A polished, two-way centre who already brings the full package. His patience with the puck allows him to distribute with high efficiency. Boasts an elite brain."
