Simon Edvinsson's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - July 12th: "His skating is effective in getting pucks out of his zone, and he's elusive with it in creating offensive chances for himself and teammates."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - July 12th: "Edvinsson (6-4, 198) is a physical, left-shot defenseman with a good set of tools, including mobility, skating and a strong shot."

Hockey Prospecting - July 8th: "He’s big and has a long reach and is regarded as pretty mobile for a big man. He’s estimated to be a two-way or shutdown Top 4 dman in the NHL."

Josh Bell of FC Hockey - July 8th: "He excels at moving the puck in transition and staying calm under pressure. Moving forward, he’ll need to work on his defensive positioning and awareness."

Viktor Bergman of FC Hockey - July 8th: "His decision-making is a question mark, and he can be inconsistent at times"

Alexa Potack - Dobber Prospects - July 7th: "Edvinsson is a strong, tall, mature defenseman that can also use his hands to weave his way through traffic as if he were five inches shorter and 20 pounds lighter. He thrives in the defensive and neutral zones, despite his slight lack of pace."

Scott Wheeler - The Atheletic - June 22nd: "But there’s also a lot about his game that makes projecting him forward difficult, including the fact that he’s got a weak point shot and his forward skating stride can look a little wonky and gangly, splaying from the knees and dragging the toe of his boots."

Ryan Kenneday - The Hockey News - June 11th: "Much like Power, Edvinsson has enviable tools: size, skating and skill. He played well against men when loaned out to Vasteras in the Allsvenskan."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - May 24th: "Still, his issues with decision making and consistency can be dwarfed by ideal size, an incredible set of hands, and impressive multi-directional escapability."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - May 12th: "Aside from the obvious nationality connection, he won’t escape the Victor Hedman comparisons and those are legit based on where Hedman was at this time in 2009."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Apr. 23rd: "Edvinsson is a physical, left-shot defenseman with a good set of tools, including mobility, skating and a strong shot."

Alexa Potack - Dobber Prospects - Mar. 8: "Edvinsson is extremely mobile across all zones of the ice. He is always involved in the play and appears equally confident on both ends. He does not shy away from physicality and uses his large frame with control."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 22nd: "There are flashes of high-end offensive talent but it remains just that, flashes. He shows projectability defensively, displaying the ability to close gaps quickly, get stick-on-stick, and cut angles down."
