Melart has obviously progressed very well over the years - from a goon to a physical two-way defenceman with decent puck skills. Is there any chance he garners interest among NHL teams? Sort of like Joonas Järvinen, their development has been very similar.
From 7th dman who mostly only tried to pick fights to EHT-defender now... not bad development at all...Finland needs these type of physical defenders. Checked just his age and only 23 years old... I hope some NHL team picks him and hopefully Melart could try in the AHL.
His fighting "skills" are little bit overhyped...IMO not very good at it if you compare to AHL-level but at least he is ready to drop gloves easily.
