He's 6'3", a good but not great skater. Excellent PKer and shot-blocker. Is an elite body-checker, but isn't consistently physical. Great defensively with an active stick. He's capable of moving the puck at a decent level, but hasn't shown much of it in Chicago.. but has for Sweden in the World Championships. He'll never be a point-producer or PMD, but he's got more to that area of his game than his shown IMO.
