Observations

June 2020 –  Airola had a decent season with Ketterä of the Mestis league in Finland. In 26 games, he scored 11 total points. After a strong performance, he then played two games with SaiPa of the Liiga. Airola is praised for his solid puck-moving skills. He does a great job of keeping his head up and making a clean first breakout pass. He doesn’t have the best shot, but he does well to get shots on goal. Next season he will continue his development playing for Ilves of the Liiga. Clare McManus
