Minnesota Wild blog Hockey Wilderness profiled Collberg in late May.

He's offensively talented, great shot, and he can skate. He plays with hardwork and isn't afraid to play physical. So what is the problem?

In 41 games in the SEL, he has zero points. To be fair, he isn't very much because pro teams in Sweden prefer to use their more veteran players, but still, its concerning. In addition, it is quite clear, Collberg needs more muscle and strength to compete because often times he gets overpowered.

Next on the clock with the No. 16 pick are the Washington Capitals, making their second pick of the first round.
