Talent Analysis

"Emil is a skilled creative forward who can play center and wing. He is a good two-way player who plays responsibly on defense. He's not physically there yet but will get there and he has very good upside. He's a smart player and is very good at setting up his teammates." - Dallas Stars scout Rickard Oquist

Has a good motor, a short stride with quick acceleration and good speed.

Future

Will work his way up the Swedish hockey ranks.
