VHLM Scout Report: Arvid Johansson


Recommended Posts

One prospect to keep an eye on for the upcoming VHL Draft is promising Swedish defenseman Arvid Johansson. The blueliner brings a lot of poise and reliability to the defense that is rare to see among defensemen his age, and he is showing very much promise as he begins his career on the biggest stage in the VHL.


The youngster has joined up with the Halifax 21st after coming over to Canada from his native Sweden, and he will play out the season in Halifax before entering the VHLM Draft. Playing 3rd pair in Halifax, Johansson is not quite able to fully showcase his abilities, but the experience playing in the league before the draft rolls around will be invaluable experience to pick up for him.


Johansson possesses very strong defensive instincts and is always ready to make the right plays defensively, for him it mostly comes down to developing the offensive side of his game, and refining his talent defensively. However, despite the weaknesses, he looks to be a very interesting prospect to keep an eye on as we approach the S77 Draft.
