Alexander Zetterberg has the ability to play hockey at a high level. He moves incredibly well with the puck, can get past defenders with a mix of speed and body control while stickhandling. He finds open space efficiently and knows how to play off the boards.

The only problem — in the eyes of all 32 NHL teams that didn’t draft him — is that he’s too small. Zetterberg stands about 5’8” and weighs about 160 pounds, making his crafty skills and elite stick control imperative for his size.
