In my eyes this group seems to be fairly even, so anyone playing in Jr.B this upcoming season is worth keeping an eye on. I'd wait at least a few months before making a preliminary ranking, because it'll be a lot easier to evaluate these kids once they face proper competition on a regular basis in Jr.B and national team. Hälli might become an early front runner, if he manages to get some ice time in Jr.A with Tappara.

'96-born players played their first national team games yesterday and today. Niko Ahoniemi was the top scorer from the players that played in both games; 5 goals and 4 assists.
