Observations

June 2018 – Ylönen was drafted 35th overall by the Montreal Canadiens. Ylönen is a great skater with very good goal-scoring ability but he can also make plays. He spent the past season playing at the second-highest level in Finland but will move up to the top level in Liiga for next season. He’s expected to play a big role for Team Finland at the upcoming World Junior Championship tournament. Ylönen was one of the older players in this draft class but still needs a couple of years to reach the NHL. He’s the son of former NHL player Juha.  Jokke Nevalainen
