The Philadelphia Flyers may have gotten a steal when they selected Swedish winger Oskar Lindblom with the 138th overall pick in the draft.
Lindblom fills a need in the Flyers organization for a skilled winger with size. Lindblom won't turn 18 until August but he is already 6'1" and 192 pounds.
Scouts were high on Lindblom entering last season, but he had a slow start to the 2013-14 season and slipped down many draft boards as a result.
Lindblom isn't afraid to use his size to get to the "dirty areas" on the ice. He has an edge to his game that will create some space for teammates. He already plays a "North American" style of hockey and shouldn't have much trouble making the adjustment to the smaller rinks and more physical style played here.
If he hopes to thrive at the next level, the big Swede needs to work on his skating and footwork.
If Lindblom continues to develop, he could be a great pick for the Flyers.
