Leo Carlsson's Player Profile

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 7th: "Carlsson’s strong showing at the Men’s World Championship likely created enough separation between him and the rest of the field."

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - June 5th: "A natural center who has played on the wing quite a bit this season, Carlsson has a blend of skill and strength that makes him such an interesting prospect. The power in his game isn’t used to blow guys up with big hits; rather, he uses his strength to protect the puck, put defenders on his back and drive to open space."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 5th: "Carlsson’s a big kid who has begun to come into his body (he’s 6-foot-3 and 198 pounds), but he’s also got slick handling and finesse for a forward his size, regularly finding his way through traffic or around it by out-waiting defenders one-on-one in shielded puck protection off of his hip."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 1st: "If there’s one thing Carlsson may lack, sometimes he’s not as aggressive as he could be on pucks and doesn’t impose his will physically. A lot of times he doesn’t really have to. He protects pucks well, wins his share of battles and is extremely hard to knock off the puck."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 30th: "Carlsson routinely shows the ability to beat pro defenders with skill. He gets a ton of chances in the high-percentage areas, both due to his hands and his willingness to attack the net."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 29th: "Carlsson combines speed, physicality and a penchant for highlight-reel plays. He has size, creates havoc in front of the net and held his own against quality competition in the SHL."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - May 5th: "A power forward who moves very well and is a threat to make plays off the rush. Excellent puck touch. Hard to handle along the wall and out in front of the net. The kind of player who absorbs contact to extend plays."
