Rajala is playing with team Finland in the U18 WC and is leading the tournament scoring with 7g+9a=16 pts in four games. He's just 2 pts away from the all time record in u18 games (by Ovechkin in -04, 14+4=18 in 8 games). Team Finland has 2 games left because they qualified directly to the semi-finals by winning their group. If Rajala keeps up scoring, he will probably be drafted already in the 1st round.
