There isn’t much in terms of a scouting report on Edstrom, but at first glance, it’s evident that he’s absolutely massive coming in at 6’6”. He appeared in 15 SHL games last season as well, and only registered a single assist. It’s fairly evident that this a project pick for the Rangers, but he is a goal scorer with plenty of size so we’ll see where this pick goes.

Can't say I've ever even heard of Adam Edstrom, let alone seen him play. A cursory glance at the numbers shows that he has a decent amount of offense and could carve out a role as a bottom-six forward.— Adam Herman (@AdamZHerman) June 22, 2019
