Does anyone know if he'll be drafted this year? What is his style like? Who would you compare him to? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hallikainen's chance is in international tournaments, you never know what the scouts can pick up there. He was named to the camp this summer for players battling for WJC roster spots and he does stand a small chance of making it.

Hallikainen is a wee bit smallish and plays rather stand-up. Some would say that limits his potential. If Jokerit manages to secure a solid starter for future seasons, they could afford to train him to be the new backup in 2005-06.
