Jesper Wallstedt's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - : "Heís large, heís active, he shows up in big-game moments. Already looking overly comfortable in the SHL. The skyís the limit here."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Jan. 23rd: "The 18-year-old can read the game well, has good quickness and plays an athletic style. In 15 SHL games he has nine wins, a 1.78 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - Jan. 21st: "Although many consider him to be the most heralded Swedish goalie prospect since Henrik Lundqvist, Wallstedt is a bit different stylistically in that he is more aggressive in the crease and will challenge shooters above the blue paint with regularity."

Craig Button - TSN - Dec. 15th: "Has all the attributes to be a No. 1 goalie. High level of skill, smarts, size and technique are all in place for him to take his rightful place as a bona fide franchise goalie."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Nov. 27th: "Would help tremendously if he could steal the starting job away from Hugo Alnefelt at the world juniors."

NHL.com - Oct. 8th: "He's got good size, excellent net coverage, plays with confidence and was the difference-maker in many games this season," Stubb said. "He reads the game well, has very good quickness and plays an athletic style. Wallstedt is considered the best goalie prospect in Sweden in the past 5-to-6 years."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Oct. 8th: "Wallstedt has been a top goalie in his age group for years, routinely playing ahead of his age group. He doesnít have standout athletic tools. Heís 6-foot-3, but doesnít have the tremendous side to side quickness youíd typically imagine in a top goalie prospect."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 14th: "Where Askarov wows you with his athleticism and his ability to take over games by making difficult saves, Wallstedt beats you with unflappable technique and control."

Jokke Nevalainen - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 12th: "He isnít expected to play a lot of games but his track record both internationally and in the Swedish junior league speaks for itself. Wallstedtís combination of size, hockey sense and mobility isnít quite at the Askarov level but itís not far off either. Like Askarov, Wallstedt wonít be a long wait because heís already so mature at age 17."
