Question: “Eeli Tolvanen, how far off do you think he is? Any upside projections and/or role projections?”

 

Answer: Tolvanen signed a one-year contract with Jokerit of the KHL after being formally rejected from Boston College due to academic issues. He has a player option for the 2018-19 campaign.

 

While Tolvanen has slowed down a tad – recording just a goal and an assist in the past five contests after stringing together a seven-game point streak where he racked up seven goals and 12 points to go along with 35 (!) shots on goal. (It’s worth noting that he has managed 15 shots on net during this current five game stretch.)

 

The 18-year-old sits in a share for 15th place on the league point leader’s list and continues to rank near the very top in shots-per-game.
