Liking Pontus Aberg at #37 for the #Preds. Good pickup for someone with First-Round talent.

Should Aberg play a game for the Preds, he will overtake Ramzi Abid at the top of the team’s alphabetical listing of players. — Jim Diamond (@diamondhockey) June 23, 2012
#Predators take Pontus Aberg 37th overall. Has a lot of upside. Good pick by them.

Fantastic grab in Aberg for the #Predators in the 2nd round. 1st pick for them is like a 1st round value

NSH takes Aberg. 9th on my board. Huge fan of his. He can skate with the best in this class, has good puck skills and a bullet shot.
