He just doesn't seem to get rattled for a young guy and seems to have a feel for when to jump up on a play.

So far, I'm wholly impressed by this player.
I'm all about his talent. He's incredible.

How about the play where he skated laterally creating space with the puck before firing off a sharp wrister that only a great glove save prevented from being a highlight reel goal to make the other fan envious.

Pitkanen is a stud. I could talk about him for hours. Hell, I even signed up for Google News Alerts on "Pitkanen".
