Meet William Wallinder
Walliunder was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings 32nd overall in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. Wallinder has been playing in the Swedish Hockey League for the Rogle BK team this season alongside another future Red Wing, Marco Kasper.
Wallinder has played in 50 games this season, scored seven goals, added 19 assists, and was a plus-three in the plus/minus category. Wallinder and his Rogle BK team just wrapped up their season with a loss in the quarterfinals of their playoffs. The six-foot-four lefty defenseman will be a solid addition to the Red Wings' future and will be fun to see play with the Griffins as they wrap up their season in the next couple of weeks.
