Here is a quick translation of what hockeymagasinet.com said about him in their draft preview:
Can play both at center and on the wing...got a very competent two-way game and is at the same time tough and physical...loves to throw his body around and does is successfully...works insanely hard on the ice...his skating is very good...first steps can become better...breakaway speed from center circle is good...successful at transporting the puck in the offensive zone...loves to use his hard and heavy shot...good hockey and goal sense...very good at killing penalties and competent in the power play with his nice shot and goal sense...his enthusiasm on the ice is fantastic to watch...he is a tough guy with good size and he never backs out...the writer of the article thinks he will turn into a good role player and a shut-down forward like Samuel Påhlsson
