The Nashville Predators have selected defenseman Hardy Häman Aktell with their fourth round selection in the 2016 NHL Draft.
Aktell is now the fourth defenseman selected by the Predators out of their first five draft selections in the 2016 NHL Draft. Aktell also happens to be the first non-North American selection but is coming from a place fairly familiar to the Predators organization by the name of Skellefteå AIK. Of note, Aktell has yet to play a game of senior level hockey with Skellefteå AIK. He has been going through their youth academy and last season surged from the Junior-18 program to the Junior-20 team. The bulk of his 2015-16 season was spent as part of the J-18 side.
