Elias Salomonsson's Player Profile

Eetu Siltanen - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "However, this year he didn’t show great production and that raised a question about his real offensive upside. Despite a lack of explosive speed, the big-bodied defender skates well for his size and can give good first passes on the breakout."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "I like his comfort level under pressure and confidence for a player as young as he is. He moves well in all four directions, he involves himself in a lot of plays offensively, he’s got room and runway to fill out his frame, and most of his finer skills (like his shot and his handling) get plus grades."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "He’s a strong skater who is able to skate pucks up ice and close on checks effectively with his feet and body. He’s not tremendous offensively, but he shows good instances of poise as a passer from both ends. "Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Feb. 14th: "He’s got work to do to tighten up his positioning and his reads but the things he needs to work on tend mostly to be about reps and maturity. I like his comfort level under pressure and confidence for a player as young as he is."

Josh Bell - SportingNews/FC Hockey - Dec. 23rd: "He doesn’t consistently drive play from his own end and there are shifts where he seems to fail to make an impact. However, he does show strong skating ability and knows how to use his long reach very well."
