A two way defenseman, he has well above average passing skills, with a slightly above average shot for a defenseman. He moves well, and his best attribute is his positioning. He thinks the game well. He is not a bruiser along the boards consistently, but he will throw a thunderous hip check in big spots. His physicality is mostly via hip check, in the open ice he is more apt to use a poke check then his body. Excellent on the pk. He could score 35-40 points each year if given more powerplay time. Trotz likes to save him for the PK, but he has started to give him more PP time on the second unit with Ville being a perma-scratch. A true number 2 defenseman on an elite team, but he is capable of serving as a number 1. Keep in mind when looking at statistics the lack of powerplay time the past two-to-three seasons is due to having some of the best offensive defensemen in the game on our blueline (Kimmo, Zidlicky, etc.)
