I would love to see Holzer and Gunnarson make up a bottom pairing someday. If for nothing else, than they have awesome last names.

Central Scouting Report: A skilled offensive defenseman… controls the puck well and is steady in his own end… has a good shot from the point and finishes his checks with authority… needs to improve his first step quickness and agility… sometimes plays more offensive then his skill permits… played 22 games with the senior Trencin team in the Slovakian league… played 42 games with Trencin Jr. totaling 24 points (9-15-24) and 72 penalty minutes in 2006-07.

His skating is just average but he is working on it and only going to get better. This very creative defender moves the puck well with nice passing skills or rushing it out himself. Has a good point shot but is best at flowing passes through him to other shooting outlets. His defensive play needs work as his positioning is weak and he doesn’t engage forwards nearly enough. His strength is his vision and creativity.
Those scouting reports are about 2 years old however

I remember him from the World Juniors and despite his size his puck skills were the best part of his game. However in the Slovakian league his offensive game has been pretty much non-existent based on his statistics. Of course that doesn't mean he can't lug the puck.

Judging by the ages of the other D on his team he might have been 6 or 7 on the pecking order:
