Trading the 11th overall pick in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft, the San Jose Sharks moved down to pick 27 and have officially selected Filip Bystedt.

Bystedt is a 6-foot-4, 187-pound center with some immense upside, picking up 16 goals and 33 assists in 40 games with Linköping HC J20 in the Swedish junior league. Bystedt also played 15 games with Linköping HC in the SHL, playing among men for part of his season.

Corey Pronman of The Athletic had this to say about Bystedt, listing him on his list of NHL Draft prospects with the most upside just one month ago: “It’s easy to watch Bystedt and imagine what he could be in the NHL as a 6-foot-3 center who can move and has some offense. When he’s flying up the ice and making a play or scoring a goal from the dots you can think of a world where he becomes an important player for an NHL team.”
