The hockey IQ and vision that Havelid has is at top level, and he is a dynamic puckhandler and distributor that keeps things interesting in every moment of his offensive game. Havelid can makes plays in high speed and makes unpredictable things happen with long and accurate passes that open up the game in a unique way. He shows patience when entering the offensive zone, and dances the blue line trying to find openings to use his hard slap shot. His timing when he gets challenged 1v1 is good, and he often finds the right pace to maneuver the opponent, strip the puck, and start a quick transition back the other way. He also reads the neutral zone game well by interrupting passes and covering options. Havelid showed that he could be vulnerable defensively in some aspects when he is in his own zone. He acted a bit passive around his own net and also a bit uninterested to fight the battles along the boards, ending up on the wrong side from time-to-time. This was my second viewing of Havelid this season and I still think he is one of the most interesting blueliners when we talk about offensive skills and upside, but his defense is an area that concerns me a bit and has not improved the way I was hoping for. At the moment I think Havelid will get picked somewhere in the middle or later portion of the second round in 2022.
