Elite Prospects:
A calm keeper with an excellent technique, which has been developed through the years. Has great positioning, and is great at keeping focus. Has developed his butterfly technique past few seasons, but has a little left of the stand-up style. Good glove. Complete keeper, with only a minor weakness being shots between the legs.
With very good technique and sound positioning, he's cool under pressure. Incredibly consistent, he owns a wealth of high-level experience, including Internationally for his native Finland.
