Observations:

 

March 2014 - Trade Deadline: Prospect Sebastian Collberg was acquired by the New York Islanders with a Conditional 2014 2nd round pick for sniper Thomas Vanek. Brendan Ross


January 2014 - Collberg represented Sweden at the Under-20 World Junior Championships in Malmo, Sweden. He had a decent showing with six points in seven games, tied for fifth on his team, as his country captured silver. Eric Daoust

 

May 2013 – Collberg has signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Canadiens. Eric Daoust


April 2013 – Collberg will join the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs for the final few games of the regular season. He will not see any playoff action because the team is in last place in the Western Conference. This will be a good opportunity to see how far along he is in his development on North American soil. Eric Daoust


April 2013 – Offensively, Collberg struggled this season in the Swedish Elite League with just nine points in 35 games. He did have a good showing in the World Junior Championship with four goals and six points in six games. Without a larger sample of games in while Collberg has had a chance to excel, his realistic potential and estimated arrival time in the NHL remain a mystery. Eric Daoust


March 2012 – Sebastian Collberg is an electric skater and a mesmerizing stick-handler. The 18-year-old boasts a quick and deadly accurate wrist shot, though he has yet to consistently display his offensive skills playing in Sweden’s top league. A little undersized, Collberg will spend at least another season or two either in Sweden or in North American minor leagues, bulking up to prepare for the rigors of playing in the NHL. Eric Daoust

 

Fantasy Outlook: B+

 

He’ll accumulate points in bunches but he could also be a future Lady Byng candidate. Those in leagues that reward penalty minutes might want to reconsider.
