Ottawa's fourth round pick is Markus Sorensen

With their fourth round pick (106 overall), Ottawa selected Markus Sorensen, a right-winger from Sweden.  Just 18 years old, he is 5'11" and 161 pounds.

Sorensen's coming off a season with the junior Södertälje SK squad in the Swedish league. Judging by the lack of information available online based on his name, I think it's safe to sat that the selection of Sorensen was off-the-board.

Elite Prospects has some information on Sorensen, and it's promising.  He put up 42 points (15G, 27A) in 15 games with his under-18 squad.  He also put up three goals in three games in under 18 international play.

Considering that this is the second Swedish player Ottawa has acquired in this draft, it's fair to say scout Anders Forsberg is having a strong influence in his last draft with the team.

Stay tuned for more analysis.
