What happened to Tommi Kivistö?
I remember that Kivistö was a pretty highly-ranked defenseman in Finland before he moved to North America to play with Red Deer Rebels in the WHL. I also believe that he was ranked high by ISS for 2009 NHL Entry Draft. But what happened to him in the season? I saw him that year two times in International games and he didn´t show for me enough to get drafted in the first three rounds of the draft. He was finally drafted by Carolina in the 7th round (#208 overall).
Personally, I´m not really fan of him. However, he showed some promise before this season and was pretty good last season in the playoff. I have seen him four or five times live in the past two years (I´m not exactly sure) and on tv more than 10 times. He doesn´t really show enough offensive skills, and his hockey sense is limited in my opinion. Shot is ok. I think undrafted Jyrki Jokipakka (who was also born in 1991) is the better player of the two.
