Viktor Arvidsson

Darren Walker

Arvidsson is a small but highly skilled winger who is a very good skater, enabling him to take on defenders one-on-one. He always keeps his feet moving and his top speed is very good and acceleration is also well above average. He’s very shifty, making his one-on-one abilities, combined with his willingness to challenge the defenseman and his dangling, a dangerous offensive player. He is very much a player that can get the puck and go with it. He’s a very creative player but still loves to re the puck and has a decent shot, both wristers and slappers. He is dangerous on the power play, as he can really get the shots off quickly. His accuracy is decent as well as the velocity of his shots, but his deceptiveness and ability to get shots off while in traffic or skating at a high rate of speed is what makes him a good goal scorer. He works hard and tries to be in solid defensive position. Passed over in two previous drafts but has opened some eyes this season showing that despite his lack of size he can play the game at a high level. (May 2013)
