Nilsson is a hard-nosed, defensive-minded defenseman. He doesn't have a huge body, but will still play a very physical game and loves to hit, especially in open ice. He also skates very well, but could improve his offensive game.
- Erik K. Piri, EP (2014)

Tom is a good passer, solid positionally and good at stopping the best opposing forwards, Joakim Eriksson (Djurgården GM) 2017
