#8 Christoffer Ehn
Pos: C
D.O.B.: 4/5/96
From: Skara, SWE
Height: 6'2
Weight: 180
Shoots: Left
Drafted: 2014 draft 4th rnd, 106th overall by Detroit (NHL)
Acquired: Signed 3-yr contract with Detroit (NHL) 4/20/17
Personal:
Plus: Excels in defensive side of the game... Excellent faceoff skills... See the ice well and is a good puck distributer... Good frame... A battler with dogged determination to posess the puck... Very strong in the Neutral zone...
Minus: Offensive numbers don't match skill set... Needs to get bigger and stronger...
Organizational Comments: Red Wings Director of Player Development - Shawn Horcoff "Christoffer had an up and down season in Frolunda last year. Didn't get off to the best start but had a much better second half and was playing his best hockey when he came over to GR to join us for the playoffs. Unfortunately he was diagnosed with mono the day he got here and was unable to play any games. He was extremely frustrated by that and has been working hard this offseason to get his conditioning back up to its normal elite level."
What GRC says: Summer 2018 Ehn very much remains a work in progress, as he looks to fill out and continue to develop areas of his game. A good skater with a good skill set, Ehn has focused fairly exclusively on the defensive side of the game, using his vision and determination to break up plays in the neutral zone. His faceoff prowess should help the Griffins a lot this season, as that was an area they struggled in last season. Ir remains to be seen whether he will be able to produce enough offense to move to the next level, but he should battle for a bottom six spot with Grand Rapids as he learns on the job.
