Noel Gunler's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 1st: "For whatever reason, Sweden has shied away from including Gunler on their national teams, but wherever this kid goes, he produces. Owns one of the most lethal shots in the draft. A great mind for finding soft spots."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 20th: "A strong skater with good passing skills, shot selection, and a willingness to drive to the net to create offense. He had 13 points (four goals, nine assists) in 9:49 of average ice time in 45 SHL games."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 6th: "A skater with good passing skills, shot selection, and who is unafraid to drive the net to create offense."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Mar. 4th: "Like many of the young Swedes, he’s in between being to good for the U20 league and not yet good enough to be a top six in the SHL. In any event, his ability to shoot the puck will translate."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Feb. 5th: "A skater with good passing skills, shot selection, and who is unafraid to drive the net to create offense."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Feb. 5th: "Goal-scoring is the driving force behind this player. Plays with energy, especially in the offensive zone. Has deception in his lightning quick release."

Brock Otten - McKeen's Hockey - Jan. 21st: "Gunler is a goal scoring winger who has a cloud of mystique surrounding him due to the fact that his country (Sweden) continues to leave him off of International rosters (Hlinka, U18, U20). The NHL combine will definitely be important for him to explain his side of the story."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 4th: "Shoots it a ton, but his skating is average and there remains an inconsistency to his game."

Will Scouch - Scouching.ca - Nov. 19th: "Gunler is dangerous in transition and a great fast break playmaker. He has scoring ability sure, but so far in the games I've tracked of his, 28% of his pass attempts are directed at or through dangerous areas."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Nov. 10th: "A talented winger who plays with a chip on his shoulder."

Jokke Nevalainen -Dobber Prospects - Nov. 4th: "At times, he’s too passive on the ice which could make it seem like he’s lazy or disinterested. But he thinks the game at a high level and seems to think he can be effective with limited effort."

Tony Ferrari -Wings Nation - Nov. 4th: "His skating is good but not great, he could stand to be a bit more efficient with his stride. Overall, Gunler could be a prospect that falls, should teams find out what the off-ice issues are, but for the purpose of this exercise, his skill-level is undeniable and he deserves to be in this spot (ranked 7th)."

Scott Wheeler -The Athletic - Nov. 4th: "There is often good reason to doubt Gunler. He comes and goes, fading in and out of games. But he also scores. A lot. And from a raw tools perspective, there’s nothing to dislike."

Chris Peters -ESPN - Oct. 22nd: "I have a feeling Gunler is going to be one of the season's most polarizing players. He has the tantalizing skill set, has a tremendous shot and put up eye-popping numbers in Sweden's top junior league last season."

Corey Pronman -The Athletic - Oct. 15th: "Gunler is deadly inside the offensive zone, with a high level of offensive IQ and a hard shot. His skating is average, though, and he needs to become a better all-around player."

Sam Cosentino -Sportsnet - Oct. 2nd: "A true right shot, right winger who anticipates the play well."

Craig Button -TSN - Sept. 16th: "Goal scorer who loves to shoot the puck. Has an excellent release that doesn't give goalies a chance to get a read. Gets into the right spots to score and has an edge to his game."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "The Swede possesses a killer instinct and never hesitates to put a shot on net. Despite that ability, he has a strong distribution game to go along with quick hands. The skating is a work in progress. "
