Calle Odelius



Skating:

Elite. Odelius flies around the ice and changes direction quickly. In fact, he often appears to get himself out of position, but recovers quickly. He knows his limits at his current level, but will have to adjust for the NHL.


Passing/Handling:

He's not a flashy passer or stickhandler, but gets the job done. In transition he's better skating the puck in/out of the zone than passing it, but can get the job done when needed.


Shooting:

He's not a scoring threat. His "sifter" is ok, but he'll just rely on screens, tips, and rebounds for any scoring.


IQ (Vision, Anticipation, Panic/Poise):

High. His IQ is a strength, both in defensive positioning and jumping up into the play.


Forechecking:

N/A


Defense:

Elite. He plays physical for a guy his age and size and is strong on and off the puck. He's also got a good active stick and is aggressive going into the corners.


Best Asset:

Skating. His skating is a great asset in being able to cover a lot of ice. He also uses it to win corner battles.


Biggest Concern:

Lack of playmaking -- not too important for a defenseman but will definitely have him overlooked.


Top Tier/Role Potential:

Elite shutdown D


Justification for Top Tier Assessment:

His skating and defense are very good, but I don't see the offense translating. Best I see is a 25-minute a night shutdown guy, maybe with points output via volume and playing with good players.


50th Percentile Tier/Role:

bottom-4 minute muncher


Justification for 50th Percentile Tier Assessment:

I think he's got a future in the NHL, but not in a super fantasy-relevant role. I see him getting a lot of PK time and some tough matchups, and I think will be a hidden bright spot for teams.


Stylistic Comparable:

Martin Fehervary
