Fantasy Summary

A young, developing goalie with good size and technical skills, very good hockey sense, and a great track record of stopping pucks at the junior level. Upside to become a starting goalie at the NHL level.

March 2020 – Blomqvist finished his first full season in Jr. SM-liiga with a 0.931 save percentage as the number one goalie for the regular season championship winning Kärpät team. Blomqvist won 26 out of the 34 games he played and took home the Best Goalie award at the end of the regular season.

Blomqvist has also been Finland’s undisputed number one goalie in his age group in international events for two years now, including at the U17 World Hockey Challenge last season and at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup to start this season. He was also Finland’s number three goalie at the U18 Worlds last season as an underager.

Blomqvist has the size, technical skills and hockey sense to become a starting goalie at the NHL level. But like most young goalies, he will need lots of time and development before he gets there. He has a chance to be the second goalie taken in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, as early as in the second round. But it also wouldn’t be surprising if the goalie run doesn’t start until the third round.  Jokke Nevalainen
