Overview:
Oscar Moller is a Swedish-born center who made the jump across the Atlantic to play in the Western Hockey League, where the style of play suited him more than if he has stayed in his home country.

He is a playmaking forward, and is known for his strong work ethic both on and off of the ice. Although his team struggled in 2006-07, Moller still registered just over a point per game. He has a strong mind for the game and is good with the puck, but his shot and his skating ability are two aspects of his game that could use improvement.

Moller’s 69 points (32G, 37A) in 68 games with the Bruins in 2006-07 ranked him fifth among WHL rookies; he captained Team Sweden at the 2007 Under-18 World Championships; was one of 40 draft-eligible prospects selected to participate in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects Game and was named the Player of the Game for Team White; was named as the co-winner of Chilliwack’s Rookie of the Year Award in 2007;  and captained Team Sweden at the 2006 Under-18 Junior World Cup and finished second in scoring.
