Fantasy Summary

Big, speedy winger who loves to score in transition. Needs to add defensive value and creativity to his game, but could become a solid third-line power forward.

April 2024 – Julius Miettinen is a 6’3 two-way forward who stands out for his forechecking, playmaking, and net-front positioning. Miettinen’s strong stick-work and body positioning make him adept in winning back pucks off dump-ins and extended in-zone sequences. Miettinen is always looking to move pucks across the slot, complemented by his smooth rush game and his slick hands. Without the puck on his stick, Miettinen funnels to the slot and demonstrates a solid blend of power and soft skill to get high-quality shots and deflections, or to make dangerous passes. Miettinen projects as a high-end, dependable bottom-six piece. Luke Sweeney

April Rankings: 54th

February 2024 – A 6’3 Finn playing in the WHL, there’s a lot of interesting aspects in Miettinen’s game, even if he is a project. Miettinen wins a lot of puck battles—mostly below the O-zone goal line—is a good skater and puckhandler, and looks to make a lot of plays into the middle of the ice. He’s also carved out a successful role at the netfront for Everett’s powerplay. However, he struggles in his own end, and doesn’t create chances at either the volume or success rate you would like to see. It might take some time, but his toolkit makes Miettinen a player to watch. Luke Sweeney
