Frolunda HC defenceman Rasmus Dahlin was at it again on Saturday with another incredible deke that made defenders look flat-out foolish.
The projected number-one pick for the 2018 NHL Entry Draft recently turned an opposing defender inside-out so badly that the player accidentally found himself completing a 360.
In Frolunda’s Saturday night tilt against Hemma Brynas, Dahlin once again completed a few remarkable moves that are rarely seen from a 17-year-old. Dahlin leaped in the air on a clearing attempt, kept the puck onside, and proceeded to absolutely undress two defenders at the blue line. The play didn’t result in a goal, but it was just another example of his unique genius.
Dahlin has tallied five goals and six assists in 27 games in the SHL, an impressive total considering he’s playing primarily with older men. His skill was on full display at the IIHF World Junior Championship tournament where he collected six goals in seven games en route to winning a silver medal.
Dahlin has been compared to fellow Swedish defenceman Erik Karlsson and plays like this one only increase the case.
