NHL Draft 2014: Philadelphia Flyers select Oskar Lindblom with 138th pick

It's Swedish winger Oskar Lindblom to the Flyers with the 138th pick.

With the 138th pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, the Philadelphia Flyers have selected winger Oskar Lindblom from Brynas of the Swedish junior league.

Here's the ISS hockey scouting report on Lindblom. They had him ranked 51st!

Lindblom was a presence in the offensive zone throughout this season with Brynas Junior team and the U18 team Sweden. He is a big body forward who plants himself on top of the crease and is hard to outmuscle. Nose for the dirty areas on the ice and thrives playing a game that will make room for more skilled players with the puck. Strength on the puck as he bulls his way up ice into the offensive zone. His feet and skating are works in progress to get to the next level. Offensively he is best suited in front where he can crash and bang loose pucks. He plays the game with that “North American” demeanour and style, thrives in the bang and crash game while showing strong awareness on both sides of the puck.

ESPN's Corey Pronman had Lindblom ranked 43rd in this draft. It seems like he had a rough season this year with Brynas but picked it up towards the end of the year and during a stint with Sweden's U18 team. He did play four games in the Swedish Hockey League, too -- that's the top league in Sweden and maybe the second-best league in the world.
