Watching the game, Wikstrand showed some strong physical play. There was this one instant where a Latvian player dumped it in and 2 were chasing him for the forecheck. He moved the puck to the farther side of the player and just LAYED him out with a hit that knocked him down and forced the other player to try to commit to the puck which he moved up-wards and had 2 players stranded that led to a rush for Sweden.
He plays like a typical all-around defender. He controls the play on the PP(When Sweden actually want to use the points) and he is their stability on defense. Also, he always seems to find the best break-out pass that almost always lead to a clear shot on net.
He has really been good.
