Observations:

 

May 2017 – Grundstrom recently signed his Entry-level contract with the Leafs and was assigned to the Marlies for playoff exposure, although the expectation is for him to return to Sweden for another year. He received an opportunity to jump into action in the AHL and posted a neat pair of points in his first game, including his first goal which was a tip in from the slot. He was featured on the powerplay which resulted in his points, it is not expected for him to feature prominently on the advantage in the future, but proves his versatility and showcases some skills when he has more room to work. Jason Banks

 

December 2016 – With the organization’s third pick in the summer’s draft, the club added ‘meat & potatoes’ winger out of Sweden who plays a quality and heavy game. Very much a value-added pick rather than production based, that said he does contribute with upside as a complimentary player. He is gearing up to have his fifth international showing for his native country and second crack at the WJC. His season in Frolunda has been very positive as his production has jumped while his PIM have dropped significantly, making him a nicer player to utilize for the team game and making him useful killing penalties rather than being the reason for. Jason Banks

 

Fantasy Outlook: C+

 

Does not possess high quality fantasy asset stats or abilities, but has potential to be a nice depth player that contributes in multi-cat based leagues. He has a few years of development ahead of him.
