After going to Finland in the 1st round the Jets went to Sweden for the 2nd round as they select right-shooting defenceman Simon Lundmark. According to CapFriendly he is signed for the next two seasons with Linköping HC of the SHL.
Here is how he is described:
He is a smooth skating puck mover with a coveted righthanded shot. He lacks any standout traits, but he does everything well, McKeen’s Hockey 2019
He has very good defensive reads and is always very well positioned. He wins himself time by being perfectly positioned when he gets the puck, Hockeyprospect.com 2019
His positional play is very strong, and he rarely gets caught out of position in his own zone , Future Considerations 2019
We just finished chatting with Lundmark on today’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN 1290 Winnipeg and he described his two best attributes as “hockey sense and passing”. Here is our chat with Simon after he was drafted:
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
