The New York Rangers made their fourth selection of the 2020 NHL Draft and selected Oliver Tarnstrom out of Sweden with the 92nd overall pick.


Scouting Report

Our friends over at Silver Seven Sens provided a general scouting report on Tarnstrom, who has been looked at as a sleeper pick.

One of this draft’s bigger sleeper picks, Oliver Tärnström is a zippy forward who seems to be able to think the game at a similar speed. His 34 points in 41 games isn’t exactly standout, but he was the strongest play driver on one of the SuperElit’s weakest teams, elevating play of those around him. He’s also one of the draft’s youngest players as a late August birthday. Tärnström likely wouldn’t have been in this section without his hype. But if there’s any candidate in this piece to have a huge breakout year, it’s Tärnström.
