Husso looked really promising three, four years ago, but his development hasn't been linear. Few months ago I tried to reply to this same question in here.

Husso is 6'1'' tall or a tad more, that's pretty much an optimal height for a modern goalie.

Based on the games I saw from Husso this season, I wouldn't draft him. I can't completely rule out the possibility of him getting drafted, but it would be a small surprise I think.

Not terrible, but Husso had only the 5th best save percentage from U18 aged starting goalies in the Finnish U20 league, Saros, Kähkönen, Lipiäinen and Lankinen were ahead of him. Also, those 7 shutouts during the regular season helped enhance the stats quite a bit. On an average night he fairly often had a below dot-9 save%.
