His biggest issue is his tendency to turn from just exceptionally calmed and poised, to straight up lackadaisical. You will sometimes see him handle the puck to causally in his own zone resulting in a turnover, or getting beaten on the outside by simply underestimating the speed of opposing forwards coming down his wing.
Other then that though, he's got pretty much everything you're looking for in a modern two-way defenseman. In terms of style, he reminds me an awful lot of fellow countryman Adam Larsson.
People will probably point out that he struggled defensively in some of his SHL games last season, but I wouldn't worry to much about that since the (now replaced) coaching staff didn't really seem to teach proper defensive positioning to any of their players.
