Draft History
Drafted in 2017 NHL Draft: 1st Round, 18th Overall Pick by Boston Boston
Additional Information A year or so back, he was considered one of the Finnish jewels of this class, but there is some doubt as to whether he truly projects as a top four NHL player: he is of only average size, has little ruggedness, or few abilities that project him as a stay at home defender. He skates well and has some up-ice skill, but hasn’t grown into a top offensive defenseman at this juncture.
