A very talented and offensive defenseman. Nummelin reads the game well and has good puck control. He is useful as a leader on powerplay. Nummelin is not a very physical player and has some obvious weaknesses defensively but has established his position as one of the best offensive defensemen in Europe. (Matias Strozyk)
