A very mobile player. Persson is a strong-skating two-way defenseman. He likes to join the rush and is especially valuable on the power play. Persson has a good point shot, but perhaps an even more impressive passing game thanks to his fine hockey sense. He reads the game well and is technically skilled.

Defensively, Persson tends to over work situations at times and should in general play more simple. He is by no means a reliability in his own end. Some additional upper body strength and muscles are needed, which would improve his quite mediocre physical game.
