A diminutive centerman, Sandberg has excellent hockey sense and offensive flair. He is a deft playmaker who can really pass the puck and skate, both very good abilities for a powerplay specialist. Can be used on the penalty kill as well. Good on faceoffs. Does his job defensively.
Size is the obvious knock on Sandberg. He also tends to sometimes get stuck in the corners and not really go straight to the net.
