The Bruins could possibly take one of these two right wings from Sweden with the 20th-overall pick.
Fabian Lysell – Lulea HF (SHL)
Like a lot of prospects in this year’s draft, Lysell’s ranking is all over the place. He’s ranked as high as No. 3 by Dobber Prospects and as low as No. 30 by TSN’s Craig Button, but he is usually ranked between 10th and 15th. Either way, he should go somewhere in the first round.
This season, Lysell struggled playing with men for Lulea HF of the SHL, scoring just two goals and three points in 26 games. However, he flourished playing in the J20 league, recording three goals and 13 points in just 11 games.
At 5-foot-10 and 172 pounds, Lysell’s top trait is his skating. He’s fast and agile. On top of that, he brings great puck handling and vision. He can make plays at top speed and also slow down the game. The 17-year-old is more of a playmaker than a sniper but can score if needed but needs to work on his shot. Additionally, Lysell is also strong defensively. Lysell’s play style has been compared to that of Mitch Marner.
Isak Rosen – Leksands IF (SHL)
Unlike Lysell, Rosen is mostly ranked in the bottom half of the top-30 and his rankings are a bit more consistent. He’s ranked as high as No. 16 by Dobber Prospects, SportsNet, and FC Hockey, and ranked as low as No. 28 by Draft Prospects Hockey and The Puck Authority.
Just like Lysell, Rosen struggled in Sweden’s top league of the SHL, registering just one assist in 22 games this season. However, he thrived in the J20 league potting seven goals and 12 points in 12 games.
The 5-foot-11, 161-pounder is a fantastic skater. He’s lightning quick and can change speeds in an instant. With that, he brings silky mitts to make dekes at top speed as well as an excellent shot as he’s a pure sniper. With his speed, Rosen is very good at causing turnovers by reading plays and getting into shooting and passing lanes. Rosen’s play style has been compared to that of Viktor Arvidsson.
