Bodin is a 6'6", 207-pound center from Sweden and Detroit took him in the seventh round at 200th overall.
Rasmus Bodin is such a diamond in the rough that I can't even find a YouTube video of him. He doesn't even have a draft prospect page on NHL.com.
I did however, find a picture of him here.
Bodin's statistics aren't that bad: 14 goals and 20 assists over 58 games combined over the last two seasons in Sweden's J18 Elit action for Ostersunds.
He will move from the J18 team to the actual Ostersunds IK team next season and is described by Eliteprospects.com as:
A huge player with great strength and reach. Has a cannon of a shot. Works hard. Surprisingly mobile for a player of his great stature. Very raw. Project.
Even if Bodin ("this project") turns into only a bottom-six player, he could be very effective as he has the size to add some more weight to his frame.
Bodin would give the Red Wings a huge (literally) edge in the face-off circle; he would also be a physical force to be reckoned with close to the net at both ends of the ice.
The fact that he "works hard" is simply a bonus that would come into play while playing with Detroit some day.
