Calle Odelius is a very steady defenseman who acts as a calming presence on the back end due to how well he’s able to control the game and play position. There’s no hesitation in his game when he has the puck on his stick, as he always knows what he wants to do with it. He does well in his own end to quickly move the puck out of danger, keeping his head on a swivel and making good, hard passes to clear it. This processing of the ice around him before getting the puck on his stick is something he does at a high level and prepares him for what’s coming next. He is capable of carrying the puck up ice but, he will not force it if a lane isn’t there – instead opting to make a crisp pass to a teammate in a better position. In general, his decision-making is very consistent regardless of where he is on the ice. Playing with a high effort level, he defends really well and understands his assignments. By playing physical when necessary, he is able to pin opponents along the boards and retrieve the puck. He could box out better, positioning himself between the opponent and the puck. He does not have a ton of offense to his game as he lacks the high-end creativity to set up prime scoring chances. With how well rounded he is, he’s got an excellent chance of making it to the NHL but he is definitely one of the safer picks available, albeit with a lower ceiling than most of the higher-end options available. Given the range where he is likely to go, a team can’t go wrong with a defensive prospect this polished and mature. This class is loaded with defensive prospects, especially in the first few rounds, but Odelius deserves to have his name in the conversation among the upper-echelon blueliners available early the second round.
