Rangers pick Karl Henriksson with pick 58

Rangers takes center Karl Henricksson at 58. He is 5’9″. 174 LBS and a lefty shot.

Scouting report:

Henriksson’s size and lack of explosive skating will always be seen as limiting factors. However, they are not fatal flaws in 2019, as they have been in previous years. He is a smart player and a hard worker. As such he could develop into an effective NHL player, capable of centring a second or third line in the right situation. He is likely a couple of years away as he continues to work on his game. In terms of comparison, Henriksson’s game is reminiscent of Kevin Labanc, but this is a stylistic comparison only and not one based on skill or ability.
