Axel Sandin Pellikka's Player Profile

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 7th: "One of the more gifted puck movers of this class, Sandin Pellikka is not the biggest, but he is one of the smartest."

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - June 5th: "The draftís top offensive blueliner is a wonderful skater and excellent passer, blending those tools in all three zones to make an impact. Sandin Pellikka can run a power play with intelligence and poise, walking the blueline to find passing and shooting lanes while having the recognition and skill to step into open space to generate a scoring chance for himself."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 5th: "Though heís not big, heís athletic and he plays hard and engages in battles in the defensive zone with some sneaky strength. Heís got a good stick."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 1st: "With his lack of size and not as much of a dynamic skill set, there are definitely real questions about his ability to play significant minutes at the NHL level. That said, heís among the best puck-moving defensemen in this class with exceptional vision and passing ability."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 30th: "He is a goal-scoring threat who can score from range but also pinches well to get scoring opportunities. He skates well enough, and can make plays on the move creating offense off the rush and from blue-line activations."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 29th: "He was a feral beast at the U-20 level, but much more reserved against men in the SHL. If he can unlock a bit more of that intensity with Skelleftea next season, thatíll be awesome."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - May 5th: "Elite skater. Quick and agile. Power play quarterback. A mostly area defender who relies on an active stick and his jump to space. Arrives ahead of opponents and moves pucks effectively. Leans top pairing NHL defenceman on projection."
