SCOUTING REPORT

Finn winger who has shown in international competition that he is both creator and finisher, using his excellent speed and acceleration to pull the trigger when the opportunity presents itself. Has a high skill package that includes an effortless stride, strong edgework, and a mighty heavy shot. Has good vision and is an excellent soft handed passer. He has the burst to get past defenders while in open ice situations and then handle his carries in high traffic. Goes from toe drag to blistering release. He is undersized and isn’t the strongest player in puck battles.
