Highlights
1-time U18 WJC Bronze Medal 1

Salin activates in the OZ more often than any other draft-eligible defender in the league. He’s in constant motion, engaging in hand-offs and constantly being down low during cycles. He’s also very active at activating into play. Defensively, he is a decent on-puck defender who engages physically quite a bit and makes some well-timed pokechecks. -EliteProspects 2022 NHL Draft Guide
