Tärnström was your typical skilled, offensive-minded defenseman. He had a hard, accurate point shot and a very strong passing game. An asset with the man advantage.
On the downside, he was inconsistent in his defensive coverage. Also wasn't a physical player despite decent size.

Son: Oliver Tärnström, Uncle: Tom Tärnström, Nephew: Alexander Tärnström
