As a teenager playing sparse minutes in the best league in Finland.

Not many guys even get the chance to play as 17-year-olds, and guys like Pulkkinen and Granlund are far from the norm. The guy put up three points in six games with the Finnish team at the WJCs this year. That's really, really good.

It's a classic Poile pick. Balanced, modest offensive upside, good intangibles. Whether he'll come over or not at 20 when his contract is up is tough to say, but expect to see him improve on his SM-liiga numbers in 11-12.
