Jeff Marek takes a look at the top 10 prospects ready to make the jump into the NHL.

Defenceman Rasmus Dahlin was one of 23 players selected to Sweden’s men’s Olympic hockey team on Tuesday.

Dahlin, 17, is expected to be the No. 1 pick at this June’s NHL Draft.

He’s coming off a standout performance at the world juniors, totalling six assists in seven games as Sweden took home a silver medal.

The Trollhattan native has five goals and 11 points playing against men in the Swedish Hockey League this season.

Other notable names on Sweden’s roster are Joel (twin brother of Henrik) Lundqvist, and former Leaf and Senator Viktor Stalberg, along with former NHL netminders Jhonas Enroth and Viktor Fasth.
