With the 107th overall selection in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, The Detroit Red Wings have selected Alfons Malmström.
Alfons Malmström currently plays in Sweden’s SuperElit league for Örebro HK where he put up 8 points in 31 games last year. SuperElit is Sweden’s highest level junior league, one step below the SHL where we should see Malmström playing sooner than later. At 6’2″, 190lbs the Wings are at least getting another big kid with some mobility in this draft and stuck with what seems to have been the plan with another defenceman.
Alfonso makes it 3 defenceman with Detroit’s 4 picks so far. We’ll see what they have planned for the 5th round.
