Meet Jonatan Berggren

MLive’s Ansar Khan profiles Red Wings prospect Jonatan Berggren this afternoon:

“I’m a skilled forward who has much speed and likes to make plays, play in the offensive zone,” Berggren, a 5-10, 181-pount left-shooting winger, said during the recent Red Wings development camp at Little Caesars Arena. “I cannot be the biggest or strongest guy on the ice. I must use my speed to advance.”

Berggren, in addition to his speed, “plays with great intensity and has a good feel for the net,” Andersson said.

Red Line Report described Berggren as having “ultra-quick feet,” which he always keeps moving, and said he has slick moves, is dangerous off the rush and has an inside-out move that “makes defenders look silly.”

Despite his size, the stocky Berggren plays in traffic and finishes his checks.

Berggren said he was shocked to hear Detroit call his name with the 33rd pick, the second selection in the second round at American Airlines Center in Dallas. But it was a pleasant surprise.

“It was so amazing,” Berggren said. “Detroit, when I was younger, was one of my favorite clubs.”
