Observations

June 2020 – This year he split his season with Lukko U20 and Hokki, only putting up three points. He bounced around the junior teams, while only getting to play five games in the LIIGA with Lukko. Next year he will play with Kookoo in the LIIGA, hopefully, fulfilling a full-time role. While he has strong offensive tools, he needs to work on producing more offensively, pointwise. He will also need to work on his game in the defensive end. He will take some time to develop, but if developed correctly, he could be a very nice pickup for the Penguins organization.  Clare McManus
