What type of a game does Antonen play, and is he someone to look out for concerning 2013 draft?
I’d like to see Joose Antonen more, but from what I’ve seen he has average speed and not much urgency or physicality in his game. He’s occasionally having some trouble getting efficiently involved with the game. Might not be the strongest guy on his feet. I think he’s 6’1’’ tall. He has a fairly good shot and hands, good hand-eye-coordination. Some good passes and play-making, but also a decent number of poor decisions with the puck. He has talent (and potential), but I'm left with a feeling that he needs to improve a lot. Like with Mäkinen, next season should tell more.
