Dahlin is a smart two-way defenseman who can play in any situation. He is a terrific skater and stick handler who can rush the puck, or join the attack in a hurry. Impressive agility makes him a good one-on-one defender. He has fine passing ability, and although not a big-time bomber, he has an accurate shot from the point. Not one to shy away from the physical game, Dahlin is an accomplished open-ice hitter. A young player, he must learn when to make the simpler play. Adding more weight should help him in board battles and around the crease.
(Erik K. Piri, EP)



Brother: Felix Dahlin
Father: Martin Dahlin
Uncle: Johan Dahlin
Cousin: Helmer Dahlin

Dahlin is a creative and shifty puckrushing blueliner, confident player with the puck on his stick, Futureconsiderations.ca 2017
I've never seen a player like him in that you give him a couple of chances and shifts at a higher level and he can easily adapt, Tomas Montén (Sweden U20 HC) 2017
Franchise d-man, proven he can meet the challenge of playing above his age level, ISS Hockey 2017
He defends like Lidström, skates like Karlsson, Ray Ferraro (TSN) 2017
He skates like Brian Leetch, Nicklas Lidström 2017
