Six Amazing Minutes Of Mikael Granlund Highlights

A lot has been said about Mikael Granlund, the Minnesota Wild's first round pick in 2010, both on here and elsewhere. His vision, skating, puck handling abilities, whether or not Granlund would ever come over to the NHL (answer: yes) and how the center's style of play in Finland will translate in North America. But for everything written, a picture is worth a thousand words and video?

We got video.

Handelo (who also put up the great Mikael Granlund: From Yard Games To The Stars documentary up) has  another Granlund video comprised of 2011-2012 highlights throughout SM-Liiga, the World Junior Championships and World Championships for Team Finland. There are some sick moves, filthy passes (although there a lot that weren't buried, something the Wild know all too well last year) and amazing goals. Needless to say, if you have six minutes, it's worth a watch to see the future Minnesota forward in action.

(Again, huge props to Handelo for creating this masterpiece)

  1. The knock on him is supposedly he doesn't have high-end speed. What I see in that video is his special sauce is he can change directions on a dime. There's more than one way to create separation.
