Scouting Reports:
“Highly skilled offensive minded blue liner with natural leadership qualities, Brännström is a smooth and effortless skater who can easily move the puck out of his own end and start the rush. Has good vision on both the rush and in the offensive zone and is capable of finishing plays.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“A diminutive, but highly skilled offensive blueliner…a smooth skater who is mobile and able to escape pressure…has great poise with the puck and tremendous vision…makes great outlet passes and has the ability to run a PP…a good puck-mover who can skate it up ice himself and he also boasts a heavy point shot… extremely smart…makes great reads at both ends and knows when to get involved offensively…able to keep up with the quicker skilled opponents not only because of quickness but because of his awareness and smarts…defensively positions his stick and body well to contain opposing players and angle them wide and away from the net…he is very strong and able to successfully separate players from the puck…able to find success despite being smaller…possesses a great understanding of the game…projects as a solid top-four two-way contributor or better.  (November 2016)” – Future Considerations
