The Nashville Predators selected Patrick Cehlin from the Djurgarden in Sweden with their fifth round pick (126 overall) at the NHL Entry Draft at the Staples Center.
The 5"10" 172 pounder played in 52 games for Djurgarden last season and scored five goals and picked up six assists.
In 2008-09 Cehlin played 26 games for Djurgarden scoring ten goals and picking up 25 assists.
Cehlin was born in Huddinge, Sweden and was ranked as the 25th best European skater in the draft by Central Scouting.
Elete Prospects says this about Cehlin, "An excellent skater. Cehlin accelerates really well and has good top speed. He is an offensive minded player with good technical skills, release and creativity. Passes the puck well and is a good scorer too. Could use some fine-tuning in his defensive game."
