Moberg is a strong and powerful forward with great physical assets to his game. He is a good puck-handler who covers the puck well in many offensive situations and is skilled along the boards, where he often makes great plays to set up teammates with nice passes. He isn’t afraid to try taking the puck to the opposing net from time to time, and will also go there without it, looking for rebounds. He is a player who works hard both ways, covers angles in his own zone, and tries his best to get his hands on the puck any way that he can. Wins a lot of 50-50 battles when combining all the different tools at his disposal. He is smart, reads the game pretty well and is especially useful on the penalty kill. Showcases an active stick, closes pass lanes, and angles opponents to the outside. Comes back deep into his defensive zone to support his defensemen, and can help spearhead the breakout. His biggest contributions offensively come with the man-advantage, getting to the front of the net where he screens the goalie and tries to get his hands on rebounds or deflections. He needs to skate more and gain more speed through the neutral zone. He has decent speed over longer distances, but is not really a fast accelerator, and he also has issues with his pace and tempo. Doesn’t win a lot of footraces right now, but there is room for improvement with his stride through proper development and training. Makes some unforced errors in his own zone, and you’d like to see him use his body and strength even more to be more physical and hard to play against, since it’s already a natural advantage for him. Overall, he plays more of a smart game than a fast game or physical game, and projects nicely as someone who could carve out an NHL role as hard-working support player and penalty killer.
