In a country flooded with top prospects at virtually every position, make sure to remember Swedish right wing Anton Karlsson heading into the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on June 27-28.
In addition to being ranked No. 11 on NHL Central Scouting's final list of the top European skaters eligible for the 2014 draft, there's this:
"I think the scouts see a warrior in my game," Karlsson said. "I'm a big player, big size (6-foot-1, 187 pounds). I like to hit bodies and just be a pain in the [neck] for the other team."
Goran Stubb, the NHL Director of European Scouting, said he can see the warrior-type mentality that Karlsson speaks of in his game.
