Leo Carlsson's Player Profile

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - Dec. 19th: "The top Swede in the ’23 draft has been a highlight machine, routinely going through defenders with skilled moves and then putting them on his back and driving to the net, showcasing the power in his game."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 14th: "Will be interesting to see how high he can elevate himself at the WJC on a star-studded Swedish lineup full of NHL drafted players."

Josh Tessler - Smaht Scouting - Nov. 25th: "Carlsson’s vision and stick-handling can get him out of well-pressured jams in all three zones. He will find quality passing lanes in the neutral zone when looking for a teammate in stride to pass to and has no issue with maneuvering the puck around tight pressure."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Nov. 15th: "His skill, hockey sense and compete level are all excellent. He’s able to create a ton of offense in the high-percentage areas with game-breaking skill elements to boot."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 1st: "Carlsson’s a big kid who has begun to come into his body (he added 10 pounds last offseason to bring him to 6-foot-3 and 194 pounds), but he’s also got slick skill to complement his size, and regularly makes plays and manufactures offence for himself through little shakes, beating defenders one-on-one with his hands or out-waiting them in puck protection off of his hip."

Eetu Siltanen - Dobber Prospects - Oct. 20th: "In a similar mold to Fantilli, Carlsson is a well-rounded forward with a projectable frame. He has excellent puck skills and the ability to beat players with his hands – even in the SHL, where he already established himself as a regular player in his draft-1 season."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Oct. 19th: "Big body player (6-foot-3, 194 pounds) who will use his speed to burn defenders on the outside, but is skilled enough to protect the puck to take it to the interior."

Steven - Daily FaceOff - Oct. 3rd: "He’s already off to a good start this season and should be given better opportunities as the season progresses."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - Sept. 27th: "A smart and calculated centreman with great IQ, he shows no panic in his game. He’s calm and is always displaying a great compete level."

Bob McKenzie - TSN - Sept. 22nd: "The big Swedish forward, who has the versatility to play wing or centre, depending on the circumstances, has already earned some great early-season reviews for his play in Europe."
