Jääskä wore an A for HIFK U16 team as an underager. Nice skill level and hockey sense. Able to create a lot of offense. Also is a decent skater.
Felixson played with HIFK U16 as well as with year younger players. He is 6´5 tall, but is actually a fairly mobile defenseman. His confidence with the puck seemed to improve as the season went on. I actually saw him rushing the puck up ice in a few occasions. Good hard shot, although I didn´t see him using it much.
Kilponen played for Ilves U16 and put up decent totals as an underager. Skilled forward who can skate and make some good moves. Really would have liked to see him playing more.
All were selected to Finland U16 National Team candidates.
How would you rank finnish 2016-draftees right now?
