Brother: Darien Ekblad

Just the second player to be granted exceptional status in the OHL. Ekblad is a true two-way defenseman. He makes great passes, uses his size to his advantage, plays the body, quarterbacks the power play, can take over the game in any of the three zones and has great hockey sense.
(Tyler Parchem, EP 2014)
