Toronto Maple Leafs Draft Petter Granberg 116th Overall

The Leafs have drafted Swedish defender Petter Granberg from the Swedish Jr. league with the 116th pick. Granberg was listed as the #21 European prospect by CSB before the draft. He's 6'2 and 200lbs. Here are some profiles of him: Hockey's Future, NHL.com and Elite Prospects:

A big and strong stay-at-home defenseman. Granberg plays a very solid defensive game and rarely gets caught out of position. He plays a simple and safe game with the puck. Does not shy away from the rough stuff, but could probably play even more physical. Hockey sense is decent, but Granberg will never be a high-scoring defenseman.
