Surprise pick: Ducks take Lindholm sixth overall

Hampus Lindholm

It wasn’t an outright shocker, but it was still somewhat surprising when the Anaheim Ducks selected Swedish defenseman Hampus Lindholm with the sixth overall pick.

Lindholm was the fourth-ranked European skater by NHL Central Scouting. He was behind Filip Forsberg, Teuvo, Teravainen and Sebastian Colberg, not one of whom was selected before him.

According to Pierre McGuire, Teuvo’s never had a sip of alcohol.

So....yeah. Hampus Lindholm, everyone.

Not a drinker.
