Ottawa Senators select Mikael Wikstrand 196th overall

With their final pick of the 2012 NHL entry draft, the Senators selected their 3rd defencemen of the draft,18 year old swedish defenceman Mikael Wikstrand. He's currently playing on Mora IK in the second highest league in Sweden


Here's a desciption by Bill Placzed on DraftSite.com

Solid two way defender who never looks out of position and plays a smart game. He will need weight training, but already has excellent skating abilities and balance. Is an above average PP general, who knows where to distribute. Moves effortlessly along the blue line laterally, which helps to open the scoring lanes. An excellent long term prospect and value in the later rounds of this draft.

Given how many solid players we've been able to find in later rounds, he might just be one more of them.
