20-Year-Old Center – Columbus Blue Jackets
Alexander Wennberg Contract Information:
Signed to a three-year, entry-level contract by the Blue Jackets in May of 2014.
Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards was very impressed with his initial look at Wennberg during the first day of training camp, the Columbus Dispatch reports. "To me, he was at a level above a lot of guys that were (at the Traverse City prospect tournament), which says a lot, because there is some good talent up there," Richards said Friday. "You watch him out here and he fits right in. It’s the first day (with) lots of energy, lots of excitement. But he comes across as a ‘headsy’ player."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The 14th overall pick in this year's draft, Wennberg has the skill, smarts and drive to make an impact in every zone on the ice once he transitions over to North America. He's still a couple of years away from the NHL, but he should adapt quickly to the pro game and become a fixture in the Blue Jackets' lineup.
