3 - Otto Stenberg, F

Another versatile forward who has yet to leave Sweden, Otto Stenberg should take the professional ranks by storm the second he decides to come over. Per his profile on Elite Prospects, his North American debut appears to be 2025-26, as he’s listed to begin the 2024-25 season with the SHL’s Frolunda HC. 

Predictably, Stenberg didn’t see much ice time in the SHL this season, but that’s expected for such a young player. He spent nine games in HockeyAllsvenskan, where he posted nine points for BIK Karlskoga, scoring four goals in the process. 

Stenberg put up another seven points and five goals during an additional 12 contests when BIK Karlskoga played in the qualification tournament, and he also fared well in international play. During the World Juniors, Stenberg scored five goals and accumulated nine total points in seven games for Team Sweden. 

Given his productivity in HockeyAllsvenskan and in the World Juniors, it should foreshadow some of what we will see in the SHL next season. Expect him to further develop his game and Stenberg will ultimately make an easy transition to North America, where he should produce right away. If by any chance he doesn’t, Stenberg will eventually get used to the game and produce once he’s acclimated.
