Pontus Aberg, RW/LW

Shoots: R

Height: 5-11

Weight: 187

Born: 1993-09-23

Hometown: Stockholm, Sweden

Undrafted: Eligible in 2012








July 2013 - Following a last place showing in the 2011-2012 SEL season, Pontus Aberg and Djurgardens were relegated to the Allsvenskan. Despite disappointing for the team, the move into Sweden's second tier league was beneficial for Aberg as he was given a greater role on the team. Aberg finished the year as the leading scorer for Djurgardens with 12 goals and 40 points, good enough for twelfth in league scoring. Aberg is a shifty skilled forward and is one of Nashville's best offensive prospects. He is still at least a year away from the NHL, however, as he has stated his intention to finish the last year of his contract in Sweden with Farjestad of the SEL. Donesh Mazloum


March, 2012 – Nearly draft eligible last year with a late birthday, Pontus Aberg has turned in an impressive first full season as a member of Djurgarden in the Elitserien. Unlike many other highly-touted European prospects, the 18-year-old Swede has already shown to be a reliable contributor playing in one of the top foreign leagues and is projected to be a first-round pick in June. He is a strong skater who is mature beyond his years.  - John Canario



Fantasy Outlook: B


A skilled, if slightly undersized playmaker who looks like a solid bet as a top-6 NHL forward.
