Observations:

 

June 2017 – With improvements and depth needed on the blueline for the organization to move forward, the Leafs went to Sweden to seek similar potential as they found with Nikita Zaitsev. Expectations are not as high as with Zaitsev, but Toronto was one of a handful of teams looking to sign the puck-moving defender. He has shown strong responsibility for his own zone in the Swedish Elite League, but he has a skill set that projects strongly that he will be a more interesting producer than his 33 points in his last 93 SEL games suggest. Now it should not be expected that Rosen steps into the NHL and produces fairly soon like the young Russian did, until training camp, Rosen should only be seen as a ‘potential’ option for the Leafs and currently the strongest candidate if a rookie is utilized. But should the Buds have a good offseason with transactions, he will start in the AHL before earning a regular roster spot. He needs to add meat and tone to handle larger opponents and have the endurance to survive a full North American season which is more intensive than his Swedish experiences. Jason Banks

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

 

Looks to be a solid two-way defender that will produce as an above average second-pairing defender. But development will be key to see what role exactly he takes in North America.
