June 2023 – Jamsen dominated the U20 Finnish league for two seasons, earning himself a full-time role with the Lahti Pelicans of the Liiga, Finland’s top professional league. Putting up a strong 32 points in 43 games, including 12 goals, Jamsen showed he is ready to compete with men on the highest tier. He recently signed a two-year extension with his club, ensuring he will continue his development in Finland. The 2020 seventh-round pick has become a prospect of interest for the Kings organization and could look to make the jump to North America once his extension expires. But until then, the best case scenario remains a linear improvement on the new highs he established this season to set himself up to be on the shortlist for a callup to the NHL once he takes that next step.

June 2022 – Plenty of scouts had Jamsen going undrafted in 2020, but after putting up 47 points in 24 games for the Lahti Pelicans U-18 team of SM-Sarja, the Kings decided to take a chance on his upside in round seven. Jamsen has since moved up through the ranks, dominating the Finnish U-20 league. This earned him a look in the Liiga this past season where he added six points in 34 games, as well as eight points in seven games in the Mestis, Finland’s second division of pro hockey. Jamsen is a skilled winger with size and a lethal shot, who shows decent scoring upside. He still needs to fill out his 6-2 frame, but at 19-years-old, he has plenty of time to mature physically. Jamsen will return to the Pelicans in 2022-23 and can be expected to take another step in his development as he continues to grow his overall game. Sean Crocker

October 2020 – At only 18 years old Aatu Jamsen is a very crafty winger with raw talent that needs to be refined. He has a lot of work to do to hone and develop his skills. He is off to a great start this season with 23 points in 11 games played for the Pelican U20 team in Finland. Julian Mongillo
