David Gustafsson at eliteprospects.com
Paging @KillEmAll83 for a highlights package of this guy lol
Seems to have 0 offence
Keep in mind he's playing against men at his age...
He was great at the u18s for Sweden
Lol, highlights will come! For now here's a shift video from September. I also have video from March that I'll work on today.
David Gustafsson vs Brynas IF | Sep 21 2017
12 points in 45 games in the SEL is not bad. Esp considering he likely played minimal minutes with little PP time. Also, he easily meets and exceeds the 51% rule
wanted Wise but I don't know much of anything
So maybe Armia lite that plays centre ?
Ranked #106 by HOCKEYPROSPECT.COM
Ranked #43 by FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS
Ranked #44 by ISS HOCKEY
Ranked #50 by MCKEEN'S HOCKEY
Ranked #24 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (EU Skaters)
Ranked #64 by TSN/McKenzie
that calculates to a #55 projection and even #45 without the #106 Hockeyprospect projection. Looks just spot on for #60 overall pick.
CANUCKSARMY’S 2018 NHL DRAFT PROFILES: #27 David Gustafsson
3rd Line center with his upside being a 2nd line center if his offense picks up. He is a big solid 2 way center right now. Going to feature in the Swedish World Junior team. Can't fault them for this pick seems like a solid future NHLer
Were there any better options available that we passed on?
That looks better than my 13 second look at his elite prospect page.
HP dropped him due to his skating ability, calling it a "big drawback" in their black book. Good hockey IQ and good kid, hope he can improve the skating for today's NHL.
Last month, I wrote for The Athletic, about Gustafsson as a player that is getting undervalued in draft rankings and suggested that he might not be a first-round talent. After digging deeper into the data that is available to us and have changed my mind in thinking that he is a first round player in this draft class."
David Gustafsson Scouting Report: 2018 NHL Draft #43 - Last Word on Hockey
I think he could be a bigger Viktor Arvidsson. A little less tenacious and his skating is nowhere near Arvidsson's, but I think the offense is definitely there in the same manner as Arvidsson. His skating reminds me a little bit of Alex Burmistrov, who I thought never had top end speed but could make quick turns.
Probably less of a headless chicken in the d-zone too over Arvidsson.
I like this pick quite a bit, but as I said in the draft day thread, I liked Hållander just a little more.
Your calculation is skewed. You based it on him being #24 overall and failed to add in North American Skaters... since there is no overall because the NHL GM's dictate CS rankings like this we can say he is #48.
Based on that he is ranked #49 without HP or #59 with.
Sounds like a really good pick for us. Looks like we got full value for the late 2nd
Interesting. Gustafsson outscored K Ves in ppg.
Great pick for us. High character kid, hard worker, good size. Great vision. He has a decent shot arsenal but loves to sit in front of the net and bang in rebounds. He is likely going to be a middle 6 two-way type center.
He had what was considered a disappointing season, he was ranked around the top 5 before the season started. Obviously had a big rebound this year.
But yeah, to Gustafsson, playing in a bottom 6 role as a teenager in the SHL and putting up 12 points in 45 games is good, I really like this pick.
Also scored 9 of those points in the last 19 games of the year. Average icetime improved a bit and looks like he ran with it.
I have no issues with this pick at #60.
