His natural intincts are phenomenal. Much like those of Lidstrom and Suter. You just don't see guys making plays like he makes, seemingly simple, but making smart decisions time after time as rookies. You see guys who are ultra talented offenive defensemen from time to time like a Housley or Coffey who take the league by storm, but to play with such smarts and fundamentals on the defensive end like he does is even more remarkable IMO. In my 30+ years of watching hockey, I'm not sure I've seen a young rookie D-man play as smart a game as he's playing. Granted he's plated in an elite Swedish league, but he's still just 19. Incredible.
