Scouting Report

"Steen is a very quick, fluid skater who both drives the play and can strike opportunistically. Very efficient with the puck, he doesn’t look to overhandle it and has a strong handle on it allowing him ease of setting up a potential pass/shot. Quite a few times, Steen was able to create separation against defenders in the SHL showing off his speed and instincts. Although he looks a small 5’9, he handles contact well and is very aware and subtle off the puck and defensively. There is some question as to how dynamic his offensive skill is." - - Anthony Mauro, DraftBuzz Hockey
