Observations

May 2020 – Puustinen had a booming second season with HPK of the Liiga. He was second on the team in points with 40 in 54 games played, fulfilling a top-nine role. The Penguins hold his rights until June of 2021. He most likely will develop more in Finland before making the transition to the NHL. He has the potential to play a middle-six role on the Penguins in the future. Clare McManus
