I was surprised he didn't make the roster. Maybe he was injured or maybe they thought he wasn't a good enough skater? His skating do look quite awful. But that hasn't been holding him back before. He's been scoring a lot both in the J18 league and the national team. I was also a bit surprised that Fredrik Forsberg (Filip's little brother) was cut as well. Just like Mäkitalo he is not a great skater, but he's been scoring like crazy in the J18 league as well. Compared to Mäkitalo he hasn't produced as much in the national team this year though, therefore I have more understanding for him being cut. Another reason they were cut was maybe that they needed more role players on the roster. There were already a whole lot of firepower on the team.
