DRAFT HISTORY

DRAFTSITE SCOUTING REPORT

  • One-third of the World Junior Champion Finnish teams top line. Already playing in the Finnish Elite League, he is a huge skilled wing whose on-ice instincts make him dangerous offensively. Combine his giant frame with a hungry compete level, solid hockey instincts, a long reach and his accurate and quick release and you see what scouts are excited about. He still needs to improve his boots, but the talent is there. He is an excellent puck possession player who can control the pace. At his 6' 4" size comes with terrific use of his reach and body to involve himself in the attack. Big guys with puck possession skills are difficult to find. He has a good head for reading the offensive zone attack, and has shown high level scoring touch that might lead to and even stronger upside down the road as he grows into his frame.

USER SCOUTING REPORTS

SHOWING 1 OF 1 PROFILE

He is a member of the Finnish top WJC line and the seemingly consensus number 2 pick, although his skating isn't the strongest, he has an Ovechkin-esque shot and a big frame to boot, at 6'4, 201 lbs he can force his way anywhere on the ice he wants to go. He has very high offensive upside and a nose for the net. He's a proven winner, winning WJC gold, Finnish Elite playoffs (as well as the MVP) and came just short of world championship glory. He's really competitive and confident. And under Maurice or Bbacock he could really be a top NHLer for years to come and a future 40+ goal scorer
