Observations

June 2019 – Mäntykivi has been drafted 185th overall by the Bruins.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2019 – Mäntykivi was SaiPa’s U20 team’s top forward this season, putting up 36 points in 34 regular season games. He was loaned to Mestis team Ketterä in January and played in a decent role with the team that eventually won the championship.

Mäntykivi is a skilled playmaker who played center at the U20 level and on the wing in Mestis. He has very good hands and is able to dangle in tight spaces. Mäntykivi has very good vision and he is able to utilize his passing skills and stick-handling to create offense for himself and his linemates. He is also dangerous as a passer on the power play. His stride is pretty heavy and he doesn’t have very good speed. If he can work on his skating, he could be a player because Mäntykivi certainly has some upside.  Lassi Alanen
