Sannitz is a tough forward who can be used as winger but who actually prefers to play the center position. He is often well placed in front of the goalkeeper, in between the defensemen, and knows how to help his team from the slot, recuperating lots of rebonds and putting a lot of pressure on the goalie. He is a very important player for the penalty killing but also for the powerplay, and has been pretty often called by the national coach to play international tournaments. (Cedric Martin)
