Ollas Mattsson is quite simply, a big, strong, stay at home defenseman, and he plays the role very well. He’s not the fastest or strongest skater, and can get beat on occasions. However, he finds success by using his size and long reach while keeping things simple. With great defensive awareness, Ollas Mattsson is extremely effective. He will get down and block shots, can close lanes effectively thanks to his reach, and can straight up run you over.
Despite limited offensive ability, Ollas Mattsson makes quick and accurate passes and is a solid puck handler. Overall though, a defensive specialist with size can always be a commodity.
