Soberg’s speed is what makes him stand out on the ice. He has great hands and a ton of energy when the puck is on his stick. He needs to finish growing into his 6'0 frame, but should bulk up over the next few years. His biggest area of improvement is his off-the-puck play.
Soberg will continue developing in the Frolunda system in Sweden, until Columbus decides it is time for him to come over to North America.
