Scouting Report

"[Grundstrom is] a power forward, a hard worker and excellent competitor. He's stocky, strong, likes to play an aggressive style; strong, mobile skater, always challenging with his speed. He competes hard, battles for every loose puck; gets under the opponents' skin, takes the body. He has a lot of willpower and 'go' in his game. [He has] decent overall skills, keeps his game simple but effective; a reliable, two-way team player." - NHL Director of European Scouting Goran Stubb


  • Lead in goals for both TV-Pucken in 2012-13 (10) and the J20 SuperElit (13).
  • Made his Swedish Hockey League debut playing with Modo Hockey during the 2014–15 season.
  • Set to play for Frölunda HC in the Swedish Hockey League next season.

International talent pool more than just top three

"I like to be in the dirty areas, of course, but I also see myself as a good player and not like a checker. I'm a power forward with skills so I try to do them both … I don't see myself as anyone else. Maybe [some people] think that I have a similar style as any of these guys, but it's hard to say." - Carl Grundstrom
