I saw him in six or seven games last year. He came in and played because of an injury and he became a fan favourite already after the first game. Mattias loves to hit, and he's quite a good hitter. He knows how to use his body.

He also scored a goal that game if I remember correctly. He stood in front of goal and managed to get it in somehow.

Takes care of his defensive responsibilities and can chip in offensively at times, although it is his physical play and team play that makes him a valuable.
I guess he has some similarities with Holmström. Though I haven't really seen him as much as I would've wanted. Romelson probably has seen him a lot more.
