Fantasy Summary

Two-way, undersized forward who could easily fit into a team’s bottom six. Not known for his high-octane offense but he can kill penalties

June 2022 – Playing almost a full season (56 games) with Dallas this season, Kirivanta has been a solid option to slot into the bottom-six when needed, providing a decent defensive game, and making an effort offensively. Realistically, he won’t slot in much higher in the lineup in upcoming seasons, but as his bottom-six game develops, it’s expected that he’ll be somewhat of a mainstay on the NHL roster. Aaron Itovitch

March 2020 – The 23-year-old Kiviranta has enjoyed a successful rookie year in North America since leaving the Liiga in Finland during the off-season. It started when he made a good impression on the coaching staff in training camp with his adept two-way play, but unfortunately he was not able to secure an NHL roster spot to join the Dallas Stars. Since that time he went on to be nearly a half point per game in the AHL, maintaining a place in the top 40 rookie scoring, and further refined his two-way game. That resulted in a brief callup to the NHL with Dallas on January 3rd, 2020, and lasted for a grand total of 11 games; where he also scored his first career NHL Goal on February 1st, 2020.
