Eklund is a player that does not take any shifts off. He is the glue that keeps his line effective in all three zones. He plays at high pace and with thought and creativity. He adjusts his speed to the play, scans his surroundings, establishes his pocket of space, and presents himself as a pass or shot option. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide

Father: Christian Eklund
Brother: Victor Eklund

A very smart player who also works very hard and opens up the play for his teammates, Magnus Hävelid (HC) 2019
