A speedy forward with a lot of skill and creativity that makes him stand out on the ice. Holmstrom is an excellent skater with good first steps. He has elite acceleration and top speed and he can handle the puck and stickhandle his way through traffic while maintaining high speed. He also uses his soft hands to stickhandle his way past defenders. He has a strong wrist shot and can score from up close and from far out. He can play the game at both a high pace and a slow pace, sees the ice well and can make great plays on the power play where he mostly works from behind the net. He’s a constant threat for his opponents to handle as he likes to challenge defenders on the outside and simply outskate them to force himself around them and towards the net. He’s not a player waiting for something to happen and always tries to generate offense for his team and can create scoring chances on his own. However, he sometimes makes risky plays by doing too much on his own. He is an excellent forechecker and often can win puck battles in the defensive zone, too. He uses his speed to chase defenders and win pucks when they are trying to set up. Overall, he’s a very mobile player who likes to be involved in the game.
