Lilja is a great team player with an impressive work ethic. He is a great all-round player with uncanny vision and an average playmaking ability, he is not the most flashy player around but he gets the job done and always contributes to his team.

He would compare to a Leo Komarov type player, but with more playmaking ability. He recorded 23 goals and 12 assists for 34 points in 51 games played. Lilja went undrafted in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
