Joacim Eriksson? - REP
IŽve been offered Joacim Eriksson for a deep 3rd round pick in 2014. We do only have 3 rounds of prospect draft each year.
Anybody has any insight on him. His stats in the swedish elite league look pretty solid, and he is still young. As far as i know any NHL team could go out
and sign him as an FA.
How do you guys feel about his upside? Any chance heŽll be in the NHL some day?
Thanks for helping me out here.
Will rep every post that helps me out.
I know he's very talented (top level numbers in the SEL) and well thought of but it's impossible to predict if and when he'll come over. As a result, I'd recommend only giving up a very minor asset for him. The other problem is that there's a logjam of goalies in most systems as it is, so that decreases the chances of an external option.
He's a good goalie. He may get signed, he may not. It's too hard to say. Goalies take so long to develop. I'd feel better about a goalie prospect cutting his teeth over here.
