Detroit just landed one of my favorite sleepers at 159. Elmer Soderblom has a lot of work to do, but he’s 6-foot-7, has really good hands and skates pretty well for a player of his size. Patience will be required, but he’s more than just a big body.— Chris Peters (@chrismpeters) June 22, 2019

Quoting Elite Prospects:

Ranked #159 by MCKEEN’S HOCKEY
Ranked #55 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (EU Skaters) Highlights 1-time U18 WJC Gold Medal

He’s more of a stickhandler than a forward that will crash the net and throw big hits–Future Considerations 2019
Söderblom owns great hands for his size and likes to take the puck to the net–Mikael Ström 2018
