Isac Lundestrom

Aaron Vickers

Lundestrom is a sound, puck-possession two-way center with flashes of some offensive upside…an effortless skater who has high-end speed and explosiveness among his best attributes…gets in hard on the forecheck and uses speed to win races and get to loose pucks…has the speed to win races with opponents…uses his soft hands and vision to be a dangerous playmaker, setting up teammates quickly and accurately…poised with the puck and lets the play develop…plays heavier on the puck than his size would indicate…protects the puck well…knows how to finish…drives through defensive seams and will take the puck to the net…will shoot the puck from all sorts of angles and has a dangerous shot to do so…solid in the defensive aspects of the game… comes back hard to help the defense and has a good motor…good down-low and supports well on defense, playing a fairly mature game…can make the head-scratching play from time to time, but that doesn’t detract from his overall upside…has the potential to develop into a top-six two-way NHL forward.
