All the tools to succeed

Average Ranking:15

"“Big, strong, can move his feet and competes hard. Stands guys up in the neutral and defensive zone and hits hard. Moves pucks quickly to the best option. Has a bomb of a shot.” (Jeff Marek, Sportsnet)"

Another member of the U.S. National Team Development Program who will be taken in the lottery of the draft.

Wilde is the perfect sized defender, with all the tools to succeed. Across all competitions with the USNTDP, he has 26 points in 43 games. Wilde will be attending the University of Michigan next season.

Average Ranking: 15.5

"“Skilled puck-distributor has shown very well as a draft-eligible player in the SHL. His skill may not jump off the page, but the nuances to his game are terrific. He’s the type of player you like the more you watch him. In a centre-lite draft, his stock will continue to rise.” (Cam Robinson, Dobber Prospects)"

Lundeström made the biggest jump up boards with his solid World Junior performance with Sweden. His two goals in the quarter-finals against Slovakia were his only points of the tourney. However, his solid play in all zones impressed mightily.

Playing with Luleå HF in the SHL this season, Lundeström has three goals and 10 points in 26 games.
