Rasmus Dahlin is currently the consensus top prospect for the next NHL Draft and his 2017-18 campaign is off to a strong start.

The defenceman scored his first goal of the season for Frolunda HC Saturday in Swedish Hockey League action.

Dahlin, 17, is poised beyond his years and his ability to navigate a blue line with his puck skills and silky skating ability was on display.

His goal was assisted by Simon Hjalmarsson and former NHLer Sean Bergenheim. Frolunda ended up losing the game 3-1 to Vaxjo.

Hockey fans can expect to see and hear more about Dahlin throughout the season.
