Nils Juntorp is a slight-framed winger who plays the game with a high intensity and doesn’t let his slight frame effect his desire to get physical. He enjoys going to the net-front and battling through contact to put himself into the best possible position to get a scoring chance. He plays the game with skill, having the puck-handling ability to challenge defenders in one-on-one situations and the discipline to keep the puck close to his body making it tough to knock off his stick. He has a fearless mindset, both with and without the puck. He’s not afraid to go out of his comfort zone and try something risky with the puck or challenge a much stronger opponent in a physical battle. He doesn’t necessarily look for the path of least resistance in his attack, and this unpredictability aids in his game. Obviously the strength will be the biggest need for improvement. He’s not a shorter player by any stretch, so he just needs to add some weight to his frame – which will make it easier for his play style to translate to higher levels of competition. The battle in his game is there and the body will eventually follow. He has the skill and the tenacity to play multiple roles in a lineup which bodes well for his future. He can play an offensive role or slot lower in the lineup and play a grinding puck possession type of responsibility. As long as his strength develops, he could be an effective bottom-six winger who is a thorn in the side of his opponents every time he steps on the ice. With his skillset and the fact that he can play multiple styles, he will be an intriguing name to watch in the final rounds of the draft. If he gets stronger while maintaining this same work ethic he will be able to carve out an NHL role and even contribute offensively from time-to-time.
