Sebastian Collberg's Player ProfileAlong with Filip Forsberg and Pontus Aberg, Sebastian Collberg makes up a corps of highly skilled wingers that headline the Swedish contingent at this year’s draft. At 5-foot-11, Collberg doesn’t have the ideal size that Forsberg has, but does possess great speed, great hands and excellent one-on-one moves that were on full display when he scored 7 points in 6 games at the World Juniors, outshining the more highly regarded Forsberg. Collberg has what some scouts have described as an NHL-caliber release on his wrist shot and have similarly praised Collberg’s offensive awareness and ability to put himself into prime goal-scoring position. While Collberg will likely need some time to bulk up and round out all the areas of his game, his impressive performance at the World Juniors could be a sign of things to come for this promising young Swede. Sebastian Collberg projects to be a speedy, goal-scoring winger in the NHL.
