I never knew he had such a big impact on our peewee hockey players. I knew he was big in Finland overall but oh boy is he big in for hockey players aged from 6 to 12. I work as an assitant teacher and I see these kids everyday and I always ask them who's their favorite player and stuff; Granlund is in every single one's top3. These guys actually watch these games too, LIVE(!). On weekends they go extra early to bed and wake up at 3-5 am. He's a really great role model for these kids. There was nothing like this when I was at their age.
