Nils Åman

 

Åman, Nils

Position : C

07-02-2000 Avesta, SWE

Youth team / club formateur : Skogsbo SK / Avesta BK

 
Åman doesn't display top puck skills but is a very smart two-way center. Strong along the boards.
Dynamic skating. Ability to remove passing paths and to steal pucks with his good anticipation.
He learnt hockey in Avesta clubs who divide age categories between themselves (Skogsbo until U14, Avesta BK from U15).
At 16 he went to Leksand and made his first step at senior level when LIF got promoted to elite in 2019.
Colorado drafted him in the sixth round in 2019 but never offered him a contract.
Vancouver signed him three years later after his good World Championship. He debuted in the NHL on October 12, 2022.

Åman n'a pas une technique exceptionnelle mais c'est un centre très intelligent dans les deux sens du jeu. Fort le long des bandes.
Patinage dynamique. Capacité à couper les lignes de passe et à intercepter les palets grâce à son sens de l'anticipation.
Il a appris le hockey dans les deux clubs d'Avesta qui se partagent le travail de formation (Skogsbo jusqu'à 14 ans, Avesta BK ensuite).
At 16 he went to Leksand and made his first step at senior level when LIF got promoted to elite in 2019.
Colorado l'a drafté au sixième tour en 2019 mais ne l'a jamais mis sous contrat.
Vancouver a donc pu le faire signer en 2022 après son bon championnat du monde. Il a débuté en NHL le 12 octobre 2022.
