/ English Player Description
Pääjärvi is a very speedy and skilled winger. His acceleration is top notch and what really characterizes his game is the way he drives to the net. In full speed, he gets around the opposing defenseman with ease and usually gets the puck on the net with a quick wrist-shot. Offensively, he is also blessed with above average hockey sense, nice technical skills and the ability to set up his teammates with passes. He is a creative player with smarts that usually scores quite spectacular goals and does things that are hard for the defensemen to read.

Defensively, he has throughout his career as a junior been considered as a sloppy player with not enough willingness to back check and to the dirty work. This is something Pääjärvi Svensson has worked very hard on and improved significantly. Today, he is in fact a quite capable two-way player that also battles for the puck and takes care of his responsibilities. However, there are still some defensive aspects that could use improvement. Size and strength is good and he has all the tools to become a dangerous offensive force.
As of Edmonton Oilers rookie development camp (July 2010), Magnus Pääjärvi Svensson is going by Magnus Paajarvi in the NHL and North America.

Swedish Player Description
Pääjärvi är en oerhört skicklig skridskoåkare. Han accelererar imponerande snabbt och något som direkt utmärker hans spelstil är viljan att gå direkt på mål. Ofta rundar han backen på utsidan i hög fart och tar sig in på mål där han från nära håll avlossar en kvick handledare. Offensivt är han mycket skicklig och även begåvad med fint spelsinne, bra teknik och förmågan att hitta sina lagkamrater med bra pass. Vidare är han kreativ och har förmågan att göra snygga och oväntade saker.

Defensivt har han genom åren fått en del kritik för att inte backchecka tillräckligt och vara alltför offensivt i sitt tänk. Detta är något Pääjärvi jobbat mycket med och förbättrat avsevärt. Han är nu en kapabel tvåvägsspelare som även vinner puck och vänder spelet snabbt. Fortfarande finns det defensiva detaljer som kan bli bättre, men defensiven är inte längre någon uppenbar svaghet. Vad gäller storlek och fysik, har han egentligen alltid haft detta till sin fördel och har överlag alla ingredienser för att bli en högproducerande spelare.
