What's amazing is that he does all this against kids older than him. He is bound to play with the U18 (Maybe even U20, who knows?!) already next year. He is only 15 at the moment and has tremendous potential. In a few years he will be making his SM-Liiga (Finnish Elite League) debut. Trust me I've seen this kid play and he is GOOD!
Could you describe his game if you've seen more of him?

You should hold back your expectations a bit concerning next year. He's yet to make a NT debut in any age group, so most likely he will play U16 and U17 next year. I don't think there ever has been a player playing in U18 team while being two years "underage". Let alone 4 years.
