Puljujärvi was the top performer among 98-born Finns this season, he had clearly the most success in Jr.C and was also the top scorer for Finland Selects 98’ team. Another prospect who’s definitely worth keeping an eye on is TPS forward Markus Nurmi, he was named as the most promising forward from this age group at the Pohjola camp. It’s really early, but it seems that these two are the top dogs and after that there’s a clear gap to the rest of the guys as far as pure talent and potential goes. Puljujärvi is a winger with a desire to create chances and score. Nurmi is more of a versatile all-around forward, he’s involved in all situations and able to play all forward positions. Both are tall, athletically talented and play with their right hand down. Will be interesting to see how they develop, Finland doesn’t have that many big successful forwards. 98-born age group doesn’t seem to have much to offer in the defensive department, 97’s probably have a bit more promise there.

Oh yeah, Finland wearing pink jerseys...
All players on the Finnish Selects team were 98's, not sure if few of the opponent's players were younger.
