A fast skater, Pihlström can really fly out there. He plays with a lot of energy and grit. Despite his modest size, he can deliver some huge hits. Also owns good scoring ability, as he always goes to the net.
At times, though, his hands don't operate at the same level as his feet. His smallish frame isn't the ultimate body for his style of play.
