Inside the Senate will be breaking down 40 prospects ahead of the Entry Draft on June 30. Up first is Linus Arnesson...

Linus Arnesson, a 6-foot-2, 190 pound defender currently playing for Djurgarden of the Swedish Allsvenskan division kicks off our draft profiles today.

As an 18-year-old, Arnesson is best described as “steady.” He is seen as a good (but not great) skater. He has good (but not great) size. He can move the puck up ice but doesn’t put up notable numbers offensively. He is a quintessential do-the-little-things type of defenceman. He gets the job done with smart, straightforward play.

The good news with Arnesson is he has already become accustomed to playing with grown men, racking up 31 games in the Allsvenskan this season and an additional three games with the top flight squad prior to their relegation from the Elitserien in 2011-12. He has also been an active member of Sweden’s national development program, playing 20 games with their U-20 this year alone. That experience should reflect favourably against peers who may not have played against such mature competition.

With an offensive game that leaves something to be desired, Arnesson forecasts long term as a steady defensive defenceman who is gifted with good hockey sense and the ability to shut down opposing forward.

He is projected to come off the board somewhere between rounds two and four.
