Simon Edvinsson, ‘one to watch’

The Hockey News’s Rachel Doerrie and Tony Ferrari picked a World Junior Championship-participating player who belongs to each and every one of the NHL’s 32 teams who are worth watching, and their pick for the Red Wings is a good one:

Detroit Red Wings – D Simon Edvinsson: While Canadian netminder Sebastian Cossa easily fits the bill for this exercise, it will be the Red Wings’ top pick last summer that fans should be watching. He has been absolutely delightful at the SHL level this season and his game has begun to round out the way everyone in the prospect world had hoped. Whether it’s defensively or offensively, Edvinsson will very likely be the Swedes’ best blueliner.

Continued; at the present moment, Cossa will probably back up Canadian starting goaltender Dylan Garand, so Edvinsson should be the Wings’ resident minute-munching defenseman at the WJC.

  1. Edvinsson scores on the PK…He is tall!! He is fast!! He has offensive skills!! Some scary moments but he has control!! He is not soft!!! He is an all around great hockey athlete, plays D but sometimes you will have to look at the whole ice. Very confident in what can do!!
    Playing D with Seider, Holy Sh!t Wings and Fans can look at many years as a Top NHL Dman and (may be) with Seider will be one of the best pairings in the NHL.
    He really looks like he can do what he wants and maybe as long as he wants.
    A very talented and smooth hockey player. A 6th pick in the 1st Round last year.
