Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "At his best when he's rushing the puck out of his zone. He has good, quick feet and a good burst of speed to escape forecheckers. He also uses those quick feet to retrieve pucks quickly deep in his zone to start the transition game. He's quick to move the puck out of his zone. At the (2017) U-17 Five Nations' tournament in February, he was the only defenseman on Team Finland to regularly to rush the puck out of his zone and try to create some offense. He's on the small side, and will need to add some mass to his frame in order to compete at a higher level." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
