Forsell’s game is all about skating and speed. He has really quick first steps, great acceleration, and a really high top speed. He almost never loses pace or momentum. He plays with intensity and can out-skate many of his opponents, including to loose pucks. He is effective with his stick when pinching or picking up loose pucks. Forsell can carry the puck up the ice and make successful entries into the offensive zone. He uses crossovers to gather speed and has good enough mobility and hands to beat opponents wide. His crossovers aren’t the cleanest right now, but he utilizes them constantly and deceptively, opening up plenty of routes when he’s carrying the puck. He can control the puck pretty well at high speed and he’s comfortable swinging it to the outside of his body to help manoeuvre around defenders. When entering the offensive zone he can either slow down the play and wait for his teammates to establish pressure, but he also has the instincts to attack the middle to create a scoring chance. He owns a good, hard first pass. He tries to create space to open up passing lanes. He also has the ability and vision to make difficult passes, such as through traffic or cross-ice. More of a pass-first mentality than a shoot-first mentality, as he doesn’t shoot the puck quite as much as he could, and his shots can sometimes be erratic and currently lack power. He is an aggressive forechecker and battles hard to win the puck, and he will also come back hard on the backcheck. He doesn’t shy away from physical play and will throw hits. He has a good frame and uses it to protect the puck, and you can see where he can add more muscle to it. There are times where he tries to do too much by himself, and other times where he gets horse blinders on and misses the right play because he’s too focused on something else. Can be prone to forcing plays.
