Juuso Rajala

Saw where he led A juniors in scoring playing for Lukko. Is this Toni's older brother and is he any type of prospect himself? I noticed that he too got his start in Ilves.

Not sure but I don't think he is... not Toni's brother or a (NHL) prospect.

They are not related. Elite Prospects always has relatives listed, Juuso Rajala is not a relative of Toni Rajala.

As a rule fo thumb, 20-year-olds should score points in SM-liiga, not Jr.A if they are legit NHL-prospects.

Think I know the answer to this, but what about 20-year olds playing in Mestis? Are there any players who played in that league that would be considered prospects?

Some teams do loan their younger players to Mestis to get more icetime and a bigger role but those guys generally can only be considered projects to make the NHL and only have Euro-league upside.

Is Kokkola any kind of prospect? I know he seemed like he was ahead of the others at a younger age but have not heard as much about him - though I believe he was fulfilling his military commitment last season.
