UPSIDE: Top-9 Two-way Forward

Eriksson-Ek reminds me of Michal Frolik and I think there’s a good chance that he ends up with the same kind of career path. A lot was expected of Frolik as a top 10 pick in 2006 and he had to adjust his game but now is widely considered one of the best 3rd line forwards in the NHL. I could really see Eriksson-Ek become that kind of player. I’m not certain his offense translates over to become a top-6 guy but I think he’s got all it takes to adapt his role and become an important player in the top-9.
