Winnipeg Jets 2020 5th Round Draft Pick (133rd overall): Anton Johannesson

Meet the Jets 5th round pick.

The Jets went with another Swede in the 5th round selecting left shot defenceman Anton Johannesson with the 133rd overall pick.

Rankings:

Ranked #50 by ELITEPROSPECTS.COM
Ranked #82 by FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS
Ranked #53 by MCKEEN’S HOCKEY
Ranked #31 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (EU Skaters)
Ranked #47 by DOBBERPROSPECTS/ROBINSON

Elite Prospects said this:

Johannesson takes advantage of his mobility to open up passing lanes and ruthlessly exploits them. He’s constantly moving his feet, activating off the point, and joining the team’s cycle off the puck. He handles 1-on-1 defending situations really well because of his four-way mobility.

The Draft Analysts wrote this:

A gifted offensive defenseman who missed most of the first half with an injury, Johannesson in the second half was on HV71’s top pairing alongside Emil Andrae and crushed the J20 Superelit’s Top-10 in defense scoring with 20 points (7 goals and 13 assists) in 17 games. He also performed in two games for Sweden at the under-18 Five Nations tournament in February but was held off the scoresheet. You can read his full report here.
