Talent Analysis Bertilsson is a skilled and mobile defenseman with above average hockey sense. He has good attitude and impressive timing in his play. An all-around defenseman that contributes at both ends, but sometimes tends to be a tad risky with the puck and he could also use some additional strength. Plays with authority and leads his team. Should become a solid player defensively with some offensive skills to go. Likes to hit and play physically.
Probably more of a defensive defenseman.
