This Kortelainen kid is absolutely huge though if his measurements are correct.
Maybe Jokerit -97s does not have too many shining individuals but as a team they have done pretty well this season. Two first lines (Heikkinen-Borgström-Okkonen / Kortelainen-Baranov-Aalto ('98)) have scored 259 points combined so they have been quite good pointswise as well. Borgström will be a real late bloomer in my eyes as he is still waiting to grow up so this was not his year yet. Kortelainen is a huge boy and possibly will not grow much anymore, still a hard worker.
