Scouting Report
He may never match his single-season highs of 43 goals and 78 points, but the veteran Swedish center is a solid point producer who drives play and is solid in all three zones. He has a high hockey IQ, moves the puck well and is elusive enough to evade checkers. He can play in any situation and is a threat to score when killing penalties. Tends to run hot and cold.
Long Range Potential: Streaky two-way center.
