Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "One of Finland's top players at the (2016 World) Under-17's. He was a threat to score in the offensive zone with his quick shot. .... He'll need to get stronger, as he's not the biggest forward, and that will help him be more assertive along the boards and win more puck battles. He has quick and agile hands that help him to maneuver in the offensive zone. Skating is fine, but could be better for a small player. Can play the point on the power play, as he did a bit at U-17's." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
