Defenders for the 2013 WC?

Anyone think Vatanen or Hakanpää might feature next year, obviously depends on how they continue to develop this upcoming season

or will it still too early for them?

Vatanen already played in 2010 WHC and was a lock in 2011 and 2012 if he hadn't gotten injured. I really doubt it's too early for him.

I think Hakanpää has a chance to be that third pairing physical D-man next year (like Joonas Järvinen this year) but that might be a bit of a reach at the moment. We'll see how he does this season, I have my hopes up.

Vatanen would've already been our best offensive dman this year so he's a lock if he's available. If Hakanpää takes similar strides next season as he did this season he could be a possible pick for next years team.

Määttä has been rumored to return to JYP. Considering he's a top prospect and already has the frame to fully compete among men, he might just become a contender if he has a good season.

Not really too young either, since he'll be the same age next spring as Vatanen was when he made is WHC debut in 2010.


From a bit older crop I wouldn't yet write out Ilkka Heikkinen and Janne Jalasvaara.
