Pontus Aberg has been selected with the 37th overall pick by the Nashville Predators.

The third of the talented trio of Swedish forwards, Aberg receives much less hype than the other two (Forsberg and Collberg), but may be just as talented. As an 18 year old, Aberg played in the Swedish professional league, and demonstrated that he can already be a reliable contributor at that level, skating with the club’s second line. He is considered a future offensive force who can fly around the rink. He relies on his heavy shot, but also can find the open man. Aberg tends to chase the puck in his own zone rather than hold his position. He can be overly physical at times and should tone down his aggressiveness. He is under contract for two more seasons with Djurgarden, so Predators fans shouldn't expect to see him in their lineup anytime soon.
