An off the wall pick (he was not ranked and was “shocked” to be drafted) who played with future Sens picks Mika Zibanejad and Fredrik Claesson, it was a rough year for Sorensen.  He was signed by Skelleftea but couldn’t make their lineup, so he spent time with their junior team before finishing the year on loan to Boras of the Allsvenskan (which has survived relegation; he has another year left on his contract with Skelleftea).  The Sens have t0 decide if they want to qualify and keep Sorensen, who may have been expected to play regularly in the SEL.  Projected as an energy forward, former Sens scout Anders Forsberg described him on draft day, “He’s a long (time) away. He’s a character guy who sticks his nose in everywhere he goes. He battles, he hits the (opponents). He just needs to put muscles on his body … he’s a raw, raw kid. We believe if we work with him well, we might get a home run. He has the potential to be a very good player. He has good hands and is a good skater.”  Here’s video from Forsberg (with Vaclav Burda) talking about him.
