Looking at his skillset though, Vrana is considered a dynamic offensive player. Although he has struggled during his call-ups to the SHL team (top level in Sweden), his ability should not be in question. With great vision and smarts, Vrana is skilled at setting up his teammates, but also possesses a “deceptive array of shots” and creativity.
Willing to get dirty and compete in the corners, Vrana displays a complete offensive package. Also strong on his skates, the young Swede has great speed, an excellent first step and great lateral movement.
And although he does not have great size, Vrana does use his frame, hands, and speed effectively to beat the opposition. However, hopefully Vrana can cement his standing if he can pick up steam and start producing with Linkoping.
