The Detroit Red Wings Select Christoffer Ehn In The Fourth Round Of The 2014 NHL Draft

The Detroit Red Wings held onto the 106th pick in the fourth round to select Christoffer Ehn out of Sweden.

Christoffer Ehn played sixty-two games between three Frolunda teams. In fifteen games with the Frolunda U-18 team he put up eight goals and eighteen points. Then he went on to play fourty-five games for the Frolunda Jr. team, which saw his production drop to eleven points and four goals in that time period.

He played his final two games of the year with Frolunda in the SHL and while he will most likely begin the season with the Frolunda Jr team next year, he could see time in the SHL as well.

Christoffer Ehn is the biggest center the Detroit Red Wings have drafted so far at 6’3″ and 181 pounds and he can be moved to the wing, as well.

He will need to add some more strength and weight to his frame before he can make his way across the Atlantic and he will have a few years to do that.

Ehn will spend a few more years with Frolunda before he will be allowed to move to make the transition to North American hockey due to international rules.
