A strong two-way player with good hockey sense and on-ice vision. Not overly flashy or technically skilled, but Larsson works hard, passes the puck well and is very valuable in all zones of the ice. A true team player with some nice offensive upside too. Decent skater, but could be faster. Leadership qualities.

Brothers: Arvid Larsson, Emrik Larsson
