With their 190th pick, the Arizona Coyotes selected Swedish winger Erik Walli Walterholm.

Walterholm made the jump to Djurgårdens IF of the Swedish SuperElit league this past season, playing 14 games on the U18 team (8 goals, 6 assists) and then 11 games with the U20 team (1 goal) that he’s slated to continue to play with for the 2017-18 season.

The 18-year-old, 6’1”, 179lb winger was also ranked #62 out of all European skaters by NHL Central Scouting for the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
