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.
We had a Dman like that (cough cough Matt Carle)....he wasn't very well-liked by some
