DPR Episode 75: Finland World Junior Preview With Jokke Nevalainen

Peter Harling


2020 World Junior preview of Team Finland with special guest Jokke Nevalainen, Head of European Scouting for DobberProspects.

Jokke and Peter review the Finland roster, if 2020 Draft eligible prospect Anton Lundell will have a spot or not and what impact that may have.

Aatu Raty will be a player to watch as he currently projects to possibly be the first overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft, and would be the first Finnish player in history to accomplish that.

One breakout potential forward to watch is Matias Maccelli who has had a monster season as an 18-year-old in the Liiga and already has two years of experience in North America.

Another question mark for the forward roster is Carolina prospect Patrik Puistola who is currently injured but is expected to go.

Peter and Jokke review the top pairing on defense in Ville Heinola and Lassi Thomson as well as the depth players to watch.

Perhaps the best player to look for is in goal with Justus Annunen who has been crazy good in the Liiga this year and is about to become a household name for Colorado Avalanche fans
