Calm, cool and collected, Wallstedt is excellent positionally and highly poised in the net. As the puck approaches his net he comes out to the top of his crease and does well to stay with the play positionally. His awareness of the play is also something that stands out and is an elite part of his game. Wallstedt’s head is constantly swivelling, looking at the options the puck carrier has and prepares himself to change positions to make the save. Even though he has incredible anticipation he also doesn’t cheat on the play and has incredible timing. His lateral movement is smooth but almost too laid back, at times he seems so comfortable and calm in the net that he almost looks bored when shifting posts at times. In addition to his good mental and physical capabilities, Wallstedt was actively coming out of his net to play the puck and rarely made mistakes with the puck on his stick. Once again, he shows, calm poise when under pressure and often makes a good smart pass to a teammate to help aide the breakout. His size and tight positioning allow him to naturally cover a huge portion of the net, even when he drops to his knees. There are no wasted movements and he doesn’t scramble when traffic comes to his crease. He holds his posts well and covers the lower net to deny jam plays. His rebound control is incredibly advanced for a goaltender of his age. He isn’t the quickest at moving around in his crease, but his movements are controlled and smooth. Wallstedt will need to be quicker in his movements, especially when projecting out to the top of his crease to cut down shooting angles. His glove hand could also be better, as he looks a little too reliant on staying square and hoping the puck hits his glove as opposed to actually catching it, which works a lot of the time but not all the time. The Swedish netminder spent his entire season in the SHL, an incredible feat for a draft-eligible goaltender in its own right, even taking over the starting role for a portion of the season.
