Dalibor Dvorsky isn’t the only top prospect playing in Sweden
Dalibor Dvorsky has some company when it comes to being the top prospect out of Sweden.
The Slovak native has honed his skills in Sweden for the past 3 years and is looking to continue his development with AIK this season.
“Dvorsky has been a star in his class from Day 1,” FCHockey scout Fredrik Haak said. “It will be interesting to see if he continues to develop this season with AIK (seniors) in Hockeyallsvenskan and U20 team at his own age level.”
The 6-foot-1 center has managed to tally six points (four goals, four assists) in 18 games thus far in the Allsvenskan, Sweden’s second division. This is tops among draft-eligible players.
Dvorsky, who was also second in scoring behind Matvei Michkov at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup last summer with 12 points (eight goals, four assists) in five games, is No. 4 in FCHockey’s Preliminary ranking for the 2023 NHL Draft.
In terms of top prospects out of Sweden, there is a plethora of talent to watch out for.
Here is Haak’s take on the draft class set to come out of Sweden:
WHO ARE YOU PERSONALLY LOOKING FORWARD MOST TO SCOUTING THIS SEASON?
“Leo Carlsson, he does so many things right already at SHL level and with his smartness combined with quick actions he could have a very bright future at NHL level in the coming years.”
WHO IS YOUR SLEEPER PICK AS THE BIGGEST RISER FROM SWEDEN?
“Axel Sandin Pellikka, I have not seen him at all earlier before this season but the things I have seen this year makes him really interesting and he could be a player that surprises many when we make a summary of this season.”
