Emil Bemstrom
20-Year-Old CenterC
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Snagged in the fourth round in 2017, Bemstrom will get his first taste of North American hockey this season after an outstanding showing last year, when he led the SHL with 23 goals in 47 games as a 19-year-old. The list of teenagers who have put up numbers like that in Sweden's top league is short and impressive, and includes the likes of Peter Forsberg and Elias Pettersson, but Bemstrom's upside probably isn't that high. His skills make him a potentially better version of Oliver Bjorkstrand, as he uses his plus speed and strong skating to find open ice and then uses a quick trigger to beat the goalie. A good campaign in Sweden this year could set him up for a regular shift with Columbus in 2020-21. Read Past Outlooks

Ready for camp

September 11, 2019
Bemstrom (face) has been cleared for the start of Columbus' training camp, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Bemstrom wasn't able to play in the Traverse City prospects tournament due to a facial injury, but he was never believed to be in danger of missing the start of the big club's camp. The 20-year-old winger was highly productive in Sweden's top league, the SHL, last year, racking up 23 goals and 35 points in 47 games, and should be considered a heavy favorite to land a spot on the Blue Jackets' Opening Night roster.
