2020 NHL Draft prospect profile: Theodor Niederbach made up for lost time

Theodor Niederbach missed the entire 2018-19 season with a knee injury that required surgery, and as a result had to play his way back up draft boards in a Frölunda U20 team that had draft prospects throughout the lineup.

Birthplace: Bjästa, Sweden
Date of birth: February 25, 2002
Shoots: Right
Position: Centre/Right-Winger
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 172 lbs.
Team: Frölunda U20

After missing the previous season, he started the year on the third line as they tried to ease him into the action. His play had him rise up the lineup, and he eventually ended the year on the top line, solidifying his draft stock in the process.
