The first two were obvious picks. But this one could fly under the radar for the Vegas Golden Knights if he builds off his World Junior performance. During last year's tournament, he posted a GAA of 2.64 and a save percentage of .914 in seven games. On a larger scale in 36 games last season, he posted a GAA of 1.86 and a save percentage of .930 with seven shutouts. with Djurgardens. This year, in 19 games with Farjestad BK, he's posting a GAA of 2.02 and a save percentage of .911 with two shutouts.

While Sweden does look like a solid defensive team that wouldn't allow too many goals, Carl Lindbom could bring youth and excitement to the crew. Of course, Lindbom is behind a logjam at the position for both the Golden Knights and Sweden. However, it's not far-fetched to see the young goalie make the team, especially if he uses his quickness to his advantage.
