The Columbus Blue Jackets have picked Alexander Wennberg with the 14th selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Wennberg has seen his draft stock soar throughout the season. Considered the second-best Swedish prospect in the draft, the center has been compared to a chameleon by scout Kyle Woodlief because you can slot him in any line and he’ll fit to whatever that role necessitates. Wennberg is an extremely adaptable player who can literally play in any situation and those types are a coach's dream. The lanky pivot could stand to get stronger, but he's a plus skater and isn't afraid to play with some sandpaper in his game. An intelligent player, Wennberg has an innate sense of where to be on the ice, which makes him very opportunistic. An 18.9 percent shooting percentage and four game-winners for Djurgarden proves that.
