Niemi, Rask, Lehterä, Sallinen, Hartikainen, Säteri, Koskinen, Järvinen.

Probably those eight are sure or almost sure to be drafted. Hopefully we get some more, even reaching a total of 10 would good after last year.

Juha Metsola might also be drafted. Before WHLfinals 12wins in 14playoffgames + 3so. Only problem is that he is really small, but I cant really see that effecting so much that he would not be drafted this year.

Is there any other Finnish player than Petri Matikainen who has won championship in one of the three major junior leagues? Metsola surely has good chance to become one this year.
