2021 NHL Draft: 5 under-the-radar Swedish players to watch

Olausson is a fluid skater with strong puck skills, able to move about the ice with a good deal of elusiveness and carry the puck with relative ease. He’s particularly effective while playing in transition, displaying very strong poise and awareness while carrying the puck. This allows him to secure controlled zone entries on a consistent basis. Olausson is a patient puck carrier who is willing to curl back into his own zone in order to maintain possession and has the slick skating ability to turn away from pressure and find open ice. More agile than he is fast, Olausson finds most of his success at creating space for himself while using his edgework to quickly turn away from checkers. He has a nice frame to work with, moves around the ice easily and can create some separation with his higher gears. He’s a very potent shooter when he has the puck in a dangerous area. In his own zone, he’s often well positioned while away from the puck, but at times was caught puck watching and in turn lost his man in coverage. A concern with Olausson is that he’s not a player who leaves a positive impact on a shift-by-shift basis. His awareness and hockey sense can be an issue, as there are some shifts where he loses sight of his defensive check or skates himself into bad places offensively. There are shifts in both ends where he’ll make a nice read or a creative play, but they need to happen consistently. There are many times when he skates to where the puck is, not where it’s going. Olausson seems to lack spatial awareness, getting caught up in bad traffic and needs to shoulder check more often. He also floats a bit and doesn’t show a whole lot of urgency or play consistently with a high pace. The Swedish winger does very little to win pucks from opponents. He doesn’t use the power elements to his game nearly as much as he should, and can get pushed around versus stronger opponents. He could stand to be more balanced on his feet. Strength is a regular issue for Olausson, who largely carries the puck on the perimeter and can have a difficult time penetrating the defense down low in the offensive zone. Adding muscle should help this moving forward.
