"Perhaps no 2012 NHL draft eligible prospect elevated his stock more with international tournament play than Sebastian Collberg. Next to Nail Yakupov, Collberg was the most effective first year eligible skater at the World Junior U20s in Calgary, outplaying his more highly touted countryman – Filip Forsberg.
At this spring’s WJC 18s, he was equally up to the task, being named one of his country’s three best players and was tied for fourth for the tournament’s scoring league. There is no shortage of reports on Collberg’s top hockey skill – his lightning quick release and explosive shot. His release and shot might indeed be the best in this draft, although Yakupov might have something to say about that.
He is first and foremost, a goal-scorer. The Swedish sniper possesses high-end hockey instincts, able to create his own chances. Augmenting his pro-calibre shot is his speed and skating. Collberg is seemingly effortless out of the blocks and has very good top end speed. He is also quite agile on his skates."
