Observations

April 2019 – Ikonen missed the majority of this campaign after having undergone knee surgery last June. The injury does not appear to have affected his development; Ikonen impressed upon returning to KalPa of the Liiga. Despite a small sample size, his points-per-game average increased significantly from 0.27 last year to 0.77. Having signed a one-year extension, we can hope to see Ikonen cross over to North America at the conclusion of his upcoming season. Jesse Sherman
