Observations

December 2019 – The Red Wings swung for the fences with their last pick of the 2018 draft, selecting Otto Kivenmaki in round seven. Kivenmaki is a tiny player with loads of offensive skill and speed. At only 5-8 and 137 pounds, Kivenmaki is a long-term project and long-shot to make the NHL, but he has the acceleration, agility, speed, and skills to create offense. It’s his size and defensive game that will hold him back. If he can improve on his positioning and find a way to become an effective 200-foot player, Kivenmäki has the makings of a great sleeper pick.  Mark Hillier
