I've read before that his favorite player is Lidstrom, and it shows in some of his instincts on the ice. He'd rather take away the play than take the player completely out of it.
edit: Yeah. From an article:
4. Do you try to model your game after a player in the NHL?
"I try to play like [former Detroit Red Wings captain] Nicklas Lidstrom. He plays a smart, simple game. I try to play a similar style."
