F Petrus Palmu - Owen Sound Attack, OHL (2015 undrafted)

Palmu will be an interesting player to watch next season as he left Finland to play in the OHL. As a player he has all the talent in the world but he is an absolute midget, right now he is smaller than Nathan Gerbe (5'4, 141lbs). Despite his size, he has destroyed every league that he has played in.

He finished Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament with 8 points in 4 games, leading Finland in scoring.

I hope you guys who follow OHL keep your eyes on Palmu and give us updates during the season.

He is actually 167cm/77kg now. Still tiny but bigger than Gerbe at least.

Nice. I like it.

Owen Sound is definitely a team in need of some talent.

Especially after this year's draft where their top two picks are leaning toward or already committed to the NCAA.

Palmu is a skilled little player. Really quick through gaps with elite hockey sense. I'll be interested to see how he does in North American Junior.

Awesome name at least. And a golden shrimp. Two great reasons to follow the guy. Thanks.

Looked very good live last night vs the Knights. Seems to be a crowd favourite already.

This kid is a joy to watch. Plays like a guy who doesn't give a **** he's nearly half of a foot smaller than his opponents trying to kill him. And not in a cocky, or overcompensating way either.

He just goes where he wants, makes the plays he wants. He handles traffic really well and can shield the puck with the best of them, with whatever he's got on his small frame fending off.

He's well on his way to becoming a fan favourite in Owen Sound. Doesn't fit the mould of a typical Attack player in stature but his work ethic should have him fit really nicely here. He blocked a shot in the home opener, which is always a great way to introduce yourself to the fans.

Hope he has 50-60 points and gets himself majorly on the draft radar.

23 games and 18 points (10+8). Second in rookie scoring. Interesting.

What are the chances for that Palmu participates Finland 2017 world juniors in Montreal?

Some highlights of Petrus Palmu

Not big kid but looks very skilled.
He's double overage and got passed twice in NHL draft becauce of his underwhelming size ( only 5'7).
So if he won't get picked 2017 draft how likely is that Palmu returns to Finland and plays season 2017-2018 in Finnish Elite League.

Petrus Palmu 1+1 against Guelph.

Palmu is best goal-scorer at the moment in OHL.
Hopefully he stays healthy Finland will need him in world juniors hopefully he's in the team.

Best goal scorer at the moment maybe on this very day, but Adam Mascherin, despite only having 7 goals thus far (16 assists) is a better goal scorer than him. Debrincat I would say is better than Palmu in that regard as well.

Regardless, I hope this guy succeeds and makes it to the NHL.

He seems like a smart, quick, crafty player. Definitely a bit of zucarrelo in his game.

That said, he's got a lot of work to do on his skating. He's got great agility, quickness, and strength / balance, but he lacks a gear or two at top speed to be effective at the NHL level IMO. The good news is that its relatively easy to go from slow at top speed to average at top speed. The bad news is that it seems very difficult to go from average to fast, and average at his size might not be enough. Teemu Pulkinnen is a great example, and he was a much better shooter than Palmu could ever hope to be.
