His posture is athletic, bending optimally in his knees and hips. Malinen is also explosive, which helps him to beat forecheckers and create clean exits as the puck carrier. When he’s at his best, Malinen can dominate the game as a transitional force capable of going coast-to-coast, blending in crossovers and stick weaves to go through the neutral zone. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide

A playmaking defenseman.. likes to hold on the puck while he looks for an available pass.. moves well in all directions, Draftin Europe 2020
