Hoping someone with more insight could answer a question.
Why was he drafted so late?
- Ranked #4 Euro. #1 Swede. (Actual draft: #10 Euro, #4 Swede)
- The 3 Swedes drafted before him only played in the J20 SuperElit while he was already promoted playing in the Elitserien.
Was it simply just a size issue?
IIRC It was just a size issue, guy was 5'10 and around a buck fifty. If he was the same size he is now on his draft day he'd go in the 1st round.
Similar to how his cousin Elias Lindholm (6' 192lbs) is projected to go top 5-10, However Elias has a (marginally) higher ceiling than Calle.
