http://www.redwingsc...ngerous-scorer/

21 years old, 6'1" 191 lbs

 

Took him with our second 3rd rounder, #79 overall, last year.

He's already quickly climbing up the prospect rankings. Red Wings Central has him listed as our #16 prospect now (Just below Nastasiuk and Athanasiou, and just above our first pick from 2012 Frk)

Apparently he's tearing Sweden up offensively. Can shoot, pass, great vision, always wants the puck, high intensity, never stops moving his feet. Only knock is he apparently needs to work on his defensive game, his faceoffs, and his physical strength (though he's already over 190 lbs).


Those first 4 picks from last year are starting to look like genius by Holland and co. Mantha, Nastasiuk, Bertuzzi, and Janmark are all suddenly tearing it up this year. I'm particularly enjoying this because of the people around here who said that, after Mantha, we had horrible picks.

In Holland we trust, in LGW we rant.

Someone else will have to confirm because I can't seem to find his game logs but wasn't he on fire in the beginning of the season and has cooled off since? Seemed like the last time I checked on him awhile ago he was at 16 goals or something, leading the league, and I just checked again today and he's only at 17.

Anyone know why he chose not to go to Grand Rapids? Anyone think he can crack the wings lineup next year? Or he has to so a full season in Grand Rapids ? I'm askin cause he'd be turning 23 during the 2015-2016 season

I've only seen Janmark play a few games, the seven or eight he played with Grand Rapids last season and another game or two of international play. I haven't been overly impressed with him so far to be honest. Also, he isn't even signed yet as far as I know, and I believe he is behind a few other guys on the depth chart. In my opinion both Nosek and Athanasiou should be ahead of him in the pecking order. But like I said, I haven't seen enough of him to say for sure. He is currently top 20 in the SHL with 5 (3-2) points in 7 games so he must be doing something right.
