Scouting Report
The big Finn is a right-shooting defenseman who came to North America for good in his late 20s and has become one of the NHL's most active hitters, but he also plays a smart, steady game on the blueline. Does not have much in the way of offensive skills, so his NHL ceiling is limited, but his size and physicality earn him ice time as long as he uses them effectively and stays out of the penalty box.
Long Range Potential: Big, physical defenseman.
