Observations:

 

June 2014 – The Winnipeg Jets selected Nikolaj Ehlers 9th overall in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross


February 2014 – Imported from Denmark, Ehlers has replaced the scoring void quite nicely after Nathan MacKinnon made the leap to the Colorado Avalanche. Like his predecessor in Halifax, Ehlers is one of the fastest skaters in the draft, blazing past defenders and utilizing his dynamic elusive cuts in and out of traffic to create room. The depth of intelligence Ehlers possesses for the game allows him to adopt both a shooter and playmaker’s mentality. Rising up draft boards quickly. Brendan Ross

 


Fantasy Outlook: A-

Tremendously gifted offensive player with the tools and intelligence to crack an NHL top line down the road, Nikolaj Ehlers is a promising fantasy prospect. Adding strength will be the biggest obstacle for Ehlers.
