Jesper Wallstedt's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - July 12th: "Wallstedt has a calm, controlled style, tracks pucks well and the 18-year-old was 11-8 with three ties, a 2.23 goals-against average and .908 save percentage in 22 games."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - July 12th: "He can read the game well, has good quickness and plays a hybrid butterfly/athletic style."

Hockey Prospecting - July 8th: "Wallstedt is already there, playing significantly in the third best league in the world. He’ll likely be in the NHL in 1-2 years from now and will likely never be playing against junior (teenage) competition again in his life. That’s a big advantage!"

Josh Bell of FC Hockey - July 8th: "He’s consistently calm and collected when under pressure. He could improve athleticism and reflexes moving forward."

Fredrik Haak of FC Hockey - July 8th: "Great body size, well-positioned in the crease, excellent puck tracking, and overall good technique."

Danny Tiffany - Dobber Prospects - July 7th: "Wallstedt never looked out of place as his size and incredible IQ made the transition to pro hockey smooth. His ability to read the rush and breakdown plays before they happen is one of the strongest parts of his game."

Scott Wheeler - The Atheletic - June 22nd: "The only areas where his game doesn’t get an A grade is probably in his lateral explosiveness and agility on his feet (which are the strengths of Askarov’s game, as well as Marc-Andre Fleury’s and Jonathan Quick’s)."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - May 24th: "Wallstedt should make it three straight years that a backstop was taken within the first 30 or so picks, and for good reason — he outgrew junior hockey several years ago and at 18 years old was one of the better backups in the SHL."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - May 12th: "How long will development take and how far down the line can you project the position? But, if Spencer Knight is the template, have at it."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Apr. 23rd: "The 18-year-old can read the game well, has good quickness and plays a hybrid butterfly/athletic style."

Danny Tiffany - Dobber Prospects - Mar. 8: "Wallstedt uses his big frame to his advantage and blends that with really good positioning. However, it’s Wallstedts IQ and understanding of plays before they happen that make him the X-Factor every time he’s between the pipes."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 22nd: "Wallstedt’s ability to read the play and use his athleticism throughout the crease to maintain his positioning is at a level seldom seen by U20 goalies, let alone draft eligibles. The young Swede plays with an almost robotic technique yet has the awareness and ability to come out of his structure to make the big save."
