Meet Joachim Nermark

(Photo by: Erik Åström)

Drafted: 93rd

Team: Linkoping Jr- SWE Jr.

Position: C

H/W: 6′ 1″ 187lbs

DOB: 05/12/93

2010-2011 Stats: 37 GP 8 G 18 Ast 26 Pts

Interesting Fact: After playing 38 games on the Linkoping junior team Nermark played 12 games on the Linkoping Hockey Club where the leading point getter was Jaroslav Hlinka. Hlinka is remember by Avalanche fans for playing one season in the NHL with the Avalanche, which he played 63 games scored 8 goals and tallied 20 assist.

Whats Next? Nermark may have been drafted 93rd overall but he was ranked 8th overall of all European skaters. The two players he was sandwiched between went in the second round so it is fair to say Nermark has 2nd round potential. Being that the Avalanche did not have a 2nd or 3rd round pick they were probably happy to see Nermark still on the board in the 4th round. I look for Nermark to get 2 full seasons in the SEL before he has a real chance during a preseason camp.
