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.
This sounds likely
