Svedberg played forward until he was 18 years of age. It's written in multiple books that his defence was affected by this.
Svedberg was not great defensively but he wasnt by any measures bad. I would say average. His defensive defencies were actually when after rushing the puck and given it to a teammate and that teammate lost it. Svedberg would be out of position with no one backing him up. It got better when undrafted came along though.
