Robertsson is a big and heavy winger who plays with a lot of power. As a typical power forward, he is not afraid to play physical and get into dirty areas. He is also very strong along the boards and uses his strength and size to protect the puck when carrying it in both acceleration and high speed. Robertsson has a high-end motor and three-zone awareness, helping him to be effective all over the ice and on every shift. He applies tons of pressure on opponents with his pace and focus, and with great routes and positioning, whether that’s deep in the offensive zone or high in the defensive zone. He contributes consistently, from stealing and winning pucks to killing penalties. Robertsson handles the puck very well in stride and likes to challenge opponents and he is a threat in every shift when he moves over the offensive blue line. Robertsson has a high hockey-IQ and knows where he has his teammates and when to pass the puck or when to hold on to it. He often makes quick decisions and opens up the game with diagonal passes through the zone. He shows great creativity and offensive awareness in attacking the middle on first touches, which create openings for himself and his teammates. He plays inside the dots on offense and looks for deflections. Robertsson has powerful strides, which helps him reach his impressive top speed. His agility really helps him to change skating directions quickly, which makes him especially hard to defend against when entering offensive zone. He has a fantastic flow in his feet and shows great balance. His shot and his ability to always be around goal scoring opportunities make him a constant threat. He has a quick release, it’s very hard and he shoots the puck with accuracy. He can make some dangerous shots and passes, but isn’t particularly elite at either. His passes are accurate and hard, without being a trait that truly stands out. He throws his body around from time to time, though he doesn’t have the muscle mass to be a physical difference-maker. Robertsson could improve his defensive game by showing more urgency when defending. The Swede is a very well-rounded prospect that will likely be carried to the next level by his competitive nature and ability to contribute in all three zones.
