Gustav Forsling

Aaron Vickers

Forsling is a mobile, skilled defenseman who likes to activate on offense and get involved in the offensive end. He moves the puck well, and will make a crisp rst pass out of his own end. Forsling skates fluidly end to end and is able to join the offense. He moves the puck well from the point and can coordinate play on the power play, but we feel that his offensive game will be built more around his ability to get involved and score. He has a quick, powerful shot and is a real weapon from the point. Excellent one-timer that is very hard and almost always on net. Defensively, Forsling is aggressive and quick to step up on his opposition. He uses his stick nicely to close off ice on puck carriers and force them off their angles. He isn’t afraid to get involved down low, and exhibits decent strength and physicality against bigger opponents. (May 2014)
