Observations:

 

June 2013 - Wennberg is a safe choice for the Blue Jackets at #14, and if anyone knows Swedish talent, it’s Columbus GM Kekalainen. While he lacks some of the top-end offensive ability as some of the others drafted around him, Wennberg brings a great combination of speed, puck control, and responsibility. In time, he should develop into a versatile player who can be used in all situations, yet still be relied upon to be a second line setup man. Tim Luccarelli

 

February 2013 – Molded in a similar style to many Swedish hockey players, Wennberg is a player with a well-rounded two-way game that stems from an intelligent hockey mind. The asset that stands out the most is Wennberg’s playmaking abilities as he executes accurate and creative passes using impressive on-ice vision. Wennberg is also extremely versatile as he lines up on the wing and centre equally well. Brendan Ross

 

Fantasy Outlook: B+

Playmaker with good offensive upside who has the potential to develop into a top-six forward.
