Same with Leino.

A right handed shooter with speed. Also saying he is gritty from what I've read means he at least wont avoind contact. I dont think he'll be very gritty in the NHL or physical, but at least we know he can most likely take and give a hit.

I'm actually excited to see what this kid can do
The funniest part is saying that he's a euro then point at other euros that failed. Like they would all play the same game and have the exact same chances to succeed. In a cap world, trying to find hidden gems via free agency is a chance worth taking. Especially Europeans under 28 that has to sign ELCs and thus coming cheap.
