Scouting Report
The late-blooming Finnish defenseman has enough mobility to play either side. Skates and moves the puck well for a tall defenseman but needs to continue improving his zone exits and puck management. Breaks up plays well with his active stick. Is showing flashes of the physicality his height would indicate he should have on a consistent basis, but he needs to add more bulk and strength.
Long Range Potential: Improving, rangy defenseman.
