Strengths: Mikkel, although he is 5’11”, plays low to the ice and as a result is a real solid player. This Team Denmark product is currently a versatile player for the Kitchener Rangers and I think that is what he is going to be for his NHL team. Right now, he quarterbacks the power-play as a forward from the point for the Rangers and does an effective job.

 

Areas to improve: I think he has adjusted well to the North American game and needs to continue to drive to the net and use his shot at effective times. There are times when he passes the puck when he should shoot and shoots when he should pass, but that’s the type of second-guessing that comes from me being a scout.

 

Kitchener Rangers head coach Peter DeBoer

“Mikkel has world class speed and skill. He has adjusted to the North American game very well and will be an impact player at the NHL level one day.”

 
Mike Torchia, color analyst of the Kitchener Rangers telecasts
“He always uses great body position to protect the puck, he is very strong on the wall, has a rocket for a shot and is also a great penalty killer. For a player with his type of shot, he probably thinks pass more than shoot. He is a guy who could probably score 30-40 goals very easily if he would shoot a little more.”
