Julius Junttila

Who is this guy?? Does anybody know something about him??

He is a -91 born, plays his 2nd Sm-Liiga game for Kärpät at the moment (even first line with Viuhkola and Kuusela) and already has a hattrick after two periods?!

Julius Junttila (1991) Kärpät

Julius Junttila
Forward
5'11'' 163lbs
15th Aug 1991
Shoots: left


So what's the story of Junttila? He won the junior A scoring title this season (41gp 27+33=60) and today, in his third SM-liiga match he scored a hat-trick. Is he another small finnish forward with no NHL-potential or a late bloomer with an outside chance? Can anyone give any info? Tormentor?

Thanks.

edit: moderators could you merge this thread with the other Junttila thread...

This guy made the most goals in the A-juniors this season. Promising guy and he played fairly well in finnish U19 team. He isn't the biggest guy out there (surprise. this is Finland) but I think after some physical training, he might become really good player.

But NHL-potential? Probably not.

Skating is clearly his biggest strength; he’s fast, agile and has a great endurance. Pretty good with the puck as well and also has decent playmaking abilities. I doubt that he’s 179cm tall, more likely 175cm or so. He’s very light weight and bit of a perimeter player, so probably not much NA potential at the moment, but I can definitely see him developing into a good SM-liiga player.
