He's playing in the SM-Liiga right now. I think the last time I looked he had 6 points in 20 or 25 games playing on non-scoring lines. He'll be on Finland's U20 team this year and is still considered one of the best young forwards Finland has produced.


What other info were you looking for?

This is what some have said in a poll, has a little bit of info.

Well I'm a Blues fan so it's hard to be fully objective, IMHO Nokelainen lacks the hands to be as succesfull as Tukonen, he has speed, size, grit & work ethic but he lacks that something that separates good players from truly good players.

So Tukonen IMHO has higher offensive upside and while he's defensively inferior, the gap is not very big compared to Nokelainen.

Ayup. Still, at this rate Tukonen can match Nokelainen's production in the future thanks to better skating and technical finishing. There's nothing wrong with Nokelainen's nose for the net, though, nor with Tukonen's defensive game, which is still vastly inferior to Nokelainen's brilliant positioning. Rarely does the draft produce better Selke candidate hopefuls. However, I don't agree on Nokelainen's physical superiority. A year ago in the WJC the two were like clones in that respect, Tukonen is also very capable.

A few months back I wouldn't have dared to proclaim Noppa the better prospect because I would've based the opinion on a level of play that had yet to materialize. Now that things are working out for him as I expected, I can join the small choir.
