I've been watching Jussi's playing about 4 years now. Last year he made the big breakthrough to his team's top and this year he has made the breakthrough to sm-liiga top.

Jussi is a great player and I am 100% sure that he'll end up at Dallas within 2 years. Even though Jussi is playing a wing now he is a center by nature. He likes to keep the puck and he is very clever as player. He is good at brininging the puck up, he gives very good passes and more important very clever ones. He is a pretty good skater also. If we have to look at some minus side about him it'll be scoring. He doesn't use his opportunities as much as he should when it comes to scoring.

Jussi has made a steady progress every year. Unlike some other players he still seems to make that progress. He is still young but he already has a big role in his team. In my oppinion Jussi is the best prospect in Sm-liiga.
