Hjalmarsson is a strong defenseman with good defensive skills and quite a bit of offensive potetial. He is a strong passer and reads the game well. While Hjalmarsson clearly has the tools to become a rather good offensive defenseman, his defensive game is perhaps even more noticeable as a strength. Plays physically and has good timing in his hits.
