Yes, he's played the whole season with Kiekko-Vantaa in Mestis (Tier 2 league) and has been one of their best players. The Jokerit fans who've seen him play, thought that despite promising performances, he wasn't ready for Sm-Liiga pace nor physicality. Turns out that he won't make his debut for Ilves until next week because in his last game for Ki-Va on Wednesday he was penalized for a check to the head and was suspended for two games. This suspension carries over to SM-Liiga. Thanks to the new CBA allowing teams to hold on to their prospects right for 4 years, there's no rush to sign him.

Oh, his dad Christian left on his own decision and now works for the Kings. Reportedly(or rumored) he wasn't happy that the Coyotes picked his son in the first place.
