Rasmussen is described by EliteProspects.com as “[a] big and strong player. Reads the game well. Good defensively. Somewhat limited offensively, but valuable as a role player. Drives the net, strong along the boards and in front of the crease. Has good hands and a good release. Good penalty killer.”
Listed at 6-3 and 205 pounds, Rasmussen will turn 24 in early July. Last season with Växjö Lakers of the SHL, Rasmussen scored 16 goals with 24 assists in 52 games. In May, it was reported by the same outlet that Philadelphia and Vancouver were interested in Rasmussen.
