The Vancouver Canucks have selected goaltender Aku Koskenvuo and defenceman Jonathan Myrenberg with their two fifth-round picks.
Koskenvuo is a goaltender that quite perfectly fits the mould for what Ian Clark looks for in goaltending prospects.
You can read a deep dive into Koskenvuo’s game here.
Jonathan Myrenberg is a 6’2 right-handed Swedish defenceman.
Here’s what FC Hockey had to say about his game:
Myrenberg is an all-round defenseman with good body strength. He has great skating technique and manages to gain into fast speed both with and without the puck. When he plays with aggressiveness and acts directly I think he gets to show his great potential. He got a lot of time in special teams tonight in both 5-on-3 and 5-on-4 and he does that part really well. He reads the game and makes it difficult for opponents to start their play and be creative.
We’ll have plenty more deep dives on both of these prospects in the coming days.
