Observations

June 2019 – Kokkonen has been drafted 84th overall by the Maple Leafs.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2019 – Kokkonen was officially measured at 5-foot-11.25 and 200 pounds at the NHL Draft Combine.  Jokke Nevalainen

November 2018 – Kokkonen has been a full-time player in the Liiga this season. He has 10 points in 21 games which is historically good production for a 17-year-old defenseman. Kokkonen is a reliable two-way defenseman who does everything well but doesn’t excel in any aspect of the game. He isn’t a flashy player by any means but he gets the job done both offensively and defensively. He’s very mature for his age both physically and mentally which has allowed him to play a significant role at the pro level. Kokkonen should be a lock for the World Juniors.  Jokke Nevalainen
