Melart is a big defenseman and plays accordingly. He loves the physical side of hockey, gets into a lot of scrums and won't run away from fights. Melart's offensive abilities have improved in recent years, while his overall game has risen close to a spot in the Finnish national team. His main weakness is his mobility and lack of speed. Primarily, he is still a physical stay-at-home defenseman with decent puck movement and a fairly good shot. (Matias Strozyk, 2012)
