An offensive-minded defenseman, Klingberg skates well and is very mobile. Has terrific puck skills and excels on the powerplay. Oozes hockey sense. Loves to join the attack and act as a fourth forward.
Needs to add more muscle strength and experience. Should play it a bit safer at times. Needs to shoot more.
