April 2024 – Daniel Nieminen is a left-handed two-way defenseman with a great skating technique and mobility that forms the foundation of his game. He’s got an active defensive stick that he utilizes effectively when defending both in the zone or the rush. He contributes offensively by creating space in the zone with mhis well-timed movement and participating eagerly in creating rush offense. His puck handling can end up limiting his offensive upside.
