Doesn't throw a lot of hits but doesn't shy away from the physical game either. Always there to stick up for his teammates . As previously said, Skellefteċ is a very offensive-minded team so it's difficult to judge his defensive abilities as he didn't play on the PK. (We had some of the best defensive forwards in the league on that job.)

Great attitude on and off the ice as well.
Small anecdote: Apparently one of the first things he did when he came to Skellefteċ last year was to get up in front of a whole lot of people to sing country songs at a local food festival. Seems to become a fan-favorite wherever he goes.

Honestly, no one in Skellefteċ belived we'd be able to sign him to another year. Guy deserves a shot at the NHL.

He's involved in half of these, #11:

And when being interviewed by Mikael Renberg in Sweden's biggest icehockey TV-show, he also delivered a country song, on prime time national television
