Observations

April 2020 – Virtanen continues to flourish on the international stage where he tallied nine points in 12 games this year. But, at the professional level, it continues to be a different story as he can’t seem to get his offensive game going. The 20-year-old appears to be on the long path to North America. Jamie Zadow

May 2019 – Virtanen was a relative unknown until a strong performance — six points in seven games — that turned some heads at the U18 World Junior Hockey Championships. Following a brief stint in the USHL for his 2017-18 campaign, Virtanen returned to Finland this year and played in Liiga. The young center struggled to find his offensive game with just 10 points in 40 games and at this point he needs to improve his skating before he can make the transition to North America. Jamie Zadow
