William Wallinder's Player Profile

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - June 23rd: "The left-shot defenseman, who has a style similar to Travis Sanheim of the Philadelphia Flyers, is at his best in the defensive zone but showed an improving offensive game by joining the rush and getting the puck to the net."

Chris Haddad - The Hockey Writers - May 11th: "William Wallinder’s a puck-moving defenseman with plus size who was the third-highest under-18 scoring defenseman in the Swedish Elite Under 20 League (U-20 SuperElit) in 2019-20 (21 points in 25 games)."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Apr. 8th: "His size and skating jump out immediately. Looking to find the balance between poise and urgency."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 1st: "Large and in-charge. A lot of upside. Quality feet. Quick outlets. Not afraid to jump into the rush. Looked competent in a pro league as a young ’02."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 20th: "The left-shot defenseman is at his best in the defensive zone but has an improving offensive game evidenced by the fact he likes to join the rush and get the puck to the net."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 6th: "The left-handed shot is at his best in the defensive zone but has an improving offensive game evidenced by the fact he likes to join the rush and get the puck to the net."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Mar. 4th: "Fascinating puck-mover with size and skating ability. Think Alexander Edler, whose value may not be truly appreciated until later in his career."

Steve Koumianos - The Draft Analyst - Feb. 20th: "A heady two-way defender with top-pairing potential, Wallinder combines physical play with excellent mobility and solid puck skills. He dominated the J20 Allsvenskan to earn a midseason promotion to the adult-age Allsvenskan, where he served in a depth role but showed improvement and consistency as the season progressed."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Feb. 5th: "Crisp, efficient passer who also shoots it a ton, with deft ability to get pucks to the net. Defends well with length (6-foot-4) and has some bite to his game."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Jan. 29th: "Wallinder has higher-end skills but he is also still fairly raw. He doesn’t hesitate to attempt making creative plays offensively."
