I didn't see a whole lot of him, but from what I see, he's got a good work ethic and being finnish, is probably very responsible defensively as they are taught that very well. He takes the body and is able to position himself in front of the net for those dirty goals. His biggest knock, and it's a big problem for him, is his speed. He is slow, but with a decent trainer, he can fix it so he could hopefully develop average wheels. I see him as a great shutdown guy that could produce 10-15 goals on a godo year if he improves his speed. A good 3rd liner. He seems like an Engvist, but with better offensive instincts.

Collin Sullivan could also be higher. From what I read and heard, he could end up as a steal in the 7th round.
