Fabian Lysell was born on January 19, 2003, in Goteborg, Sweden. During the 2016-17 season, Lysell was moved up to U-16 Division 1 with Hovas in Sweden and scored 23 goals with 30 assists in 21 games. The next season, Lysell joined Frolunda in the U16 Elite and SM Leagues and played with future NHL player Lucas Raymond, who is now with the Detroit Red Wings. Lysell scored 21 goals with 23 assists in the Elite League before playing seven games in the SM League near the end of the season. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound forward played 13 games with the J18 Frolunda team as a 15-year-old and tallied 15 goals and 12 assists in just 13 games.

During the 2018-19 season, the right wing split time with the U-16 and U-18 teams and produced at both levels. Lysell had 39 points in 14 games in the U-16 Elite League, 28 points in seven games in the U-16 SM League, and 19 points in 20 games playing for Frolunda U-18. The right-shot forward made his first appearance for the Swedish National team and collected 19 points in 9 games of international play.

After playing 26 games and posting just three points for Lulea in the Swedish Hockey League in 2020-21, Lysell would join the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League for the 2021-22 season.

Fabian Lysell Drafted 21st Overall by Boston Bruins in the 2021 NHL Draft

The Boston Bruins drafted Fabian Lysell in the first round of the 2021 NHL Draft. Lysell was the fifth right wing selected in that draft, following Dylan Guenther, Tyler Boucher, Matthew Coronato, and Isak Rosen. Only Guenther and Coronato have made their NHL debuts. Lysell had the following scout from Elite Prospects: “His skating form is nearly perfect, with great posture, depth, and flexibility at the ankles, knees, and hips, giving him straight-line speed and two-step quickness to burn. Lysell spots teammates through layers and has the deft touch to get them the puck when the time is right. He scans regularly, reloads to support his defencemen, tracks well through the neutral zone, and his work rate never wanes”.

Lysell was dominant in the WHL for one season with 62 points in 53 games and signed a three-year, $3.287 million deal with Boston after that season. During the 2022-23 season, Lysell played with the Bruins’ American Hockey League affiliate, Providence Bruins, and totaled 37 points in 54 games. The skilled winger is now in his second season with Providence.

Testing the Defensive Depth: Leafs Game Preview 21

Another hectic game for the Maple Leafs on Tuesday night against the Panthers, but ultimately, due to a disallowed shootout goal and Woll playing incredibly well, the Leafs came out of the night with two points. This team will need to get much better, but as I’ve stated before, there is still time. The biggest […]

Oilers Game 22: Winnipeg Jets

Not the ideal way to win your third straight game, but they did it. Up until the last seven and a half minutes, when they blew a 4-2 lead, they were playing some pretty decent hockey. I don’t totally blame Stuart Skinner for the last two goals, but it makes the save percentage worse than […]
