Not too bad

Sometimes overplaying but compensates that with good mobility. Often times he steals onetimers which should have been a goal.

Sometimes a showman, but compensates that with a very common-sense state of mind.

Raanta is not super-sized, but he is fast. You will find his lateral speed rather good. Is that good enough to NHL? Time will tell.

After two years in FEL as a starter, I'd say he is mentally very strong. Seems to have a twinkle in his eyes in every interview (I don't know how good his English is, though). During this year playoffs he had on semi-bad game (game 4 against Kalpa, when Ässät had the 1st chance to kill the series). After the loss, he had a shutout in the next game.

You can find guite a few youtube videos featuring Raanta. These are my favorites.
