Islanders 2013 Draft Central - Jacob Rose and Robert Hagg

by Greg Picker / New York Islanders
Despite being the youngest member of Leksands IF, Jacob Rose was a key part of the club that earned promotion back to the top Swedish division. He will likely remain with Leskands for at least another year, but in the Elitserien where his club will compete for the first time since 2006. Rose also took home a silver medal from the World Junior Championship in which he was also the youngest player on Team Sweden.

Trent Klatt, Islanders Players Development
Jacob Rose is a smooth skating Swede who already plays more of a North American style compared to most of his fellow countrymen. He is a big, physical hard-working player that’s willing to play the game at both ends of the rink. Rose has good hockey sense and awareness.
Offensive-minded defenseman Robert Hagg split time this season between the Modo Hockey Swedish Elite Level team and its junior counterpart. Playing for the junior squad he finished sixth in defenseman scoring in the highest Swedish junior league. Hagg also represented his home country at the World Junior Championship, posting two points (one goal, one assist) in five games while earning a silver medal.

Robert Hagg is a big, mobile two way defenseman who possesses a bomb of a shot. He is not an overbearing defender from a physicality standpoint, but sees the ice very well and moves the puck efficiently.

"Getting to the NHL was my goal since my first day playing hockey and being picked gave me confidence in my play on the ice. I was really happy and proud of what I accomplished, but at the same time humbled that I needed to work even harder to actually make it to the NHL."
