Hopefully we'll see him in SM-Liiga next year, if not with Jokerit, then with someone else. They say his weakness can be considered to be his defensive play.

And oh yes. Two players in our legendary 5th round, one of them a Finnish goalie. Can't go wrong there. He had a good season with a lot of progress according to team officials, but unfortunately, as of now, he'll only be the 3rd goalie for Kalpa next season in the SM-Liiga. Here again, not interested in his stats in that junior league at all, especially while playing for a so-so team.

Here's the thread about some of the Finnish prospects on the Finland board. Absolutely love reading the OP's posts and knows what he's talking about. Some of his thoughts on Lindell and Kiviaho:

Looking ahead, I want Barkov soooo badly.
