I've seen Hännikäinen quite a few times over the years and especially by watching him now in Sm-liiga, he definitely seems to be more of a two-way guy than offensive. He has been productive in the juniors but I don't think he'll ever be a special force offensively. Then again, his game might be different in the WJC compared to Sm-liiga.

If you put him on the top lines, he's a energy guy who works hard and drives the net. IMO his place on Finland U20 is definitely in the bottom-6 and I kind of hope he makes it as well. He skates hard, finishes his checks and has some skill to make plays. 100% effort every single shift, a real coach's dream.
