Filip Sandberg, C/RW

Shoots: R

Height: 5-09

Weight: 181

Born: 1994-07-23

Hometown: Jarfalla, Sweden

Drafted: Undrafted – Signed as a Free Agent with San Jose Sharks

Observations:

March 2017 – Sandberg signed a two-year deal with the San Jose Sharks after a SHL championship with HV71 in the Swedish Hockey League last season. Sandberg is a smaller player but sees the ice very well and has offensive flair to his game. His skating is solid overall and has a good burst but not the top-end speed you’d like to see from a smaller forward. He’ll likely start with the Barracuda for the 2017-18 campaign and a trajectory similar to Marcus Sorensen is likely the best case scenario for the small Swede. Zachary DeVine

Fantasy Outlook: C

Sandberg has great on-ice vision but how it translates to the North American game remains to be seen.
