What do u guys know about Jari Viuhkola?

I was looking at some of the Chi-town prospects stats and stuff and this guy Jari Viuhkola really stood out to me but I'd never heard of him. Hes 23, seems to be improving each year he plays (avg. a pt a game now in Finnish Elite league) and has some nice size. So does anyone know anything bout him and why hes never come over?

Viuhkola has played very well so far in the Finnish SM-Liiga. The problem (IMO) so far, has been he's got not much help from his line mates.

Despite that, he's totaled 12 + 11 in 22 games (4th in the league), including a number of game winners.

This week, Viuhkola was re-united with his last year line mate Petr Tenkrat, who just returned to Oulu from Russia. The third member of the line is Brad Smyth. The first game of the trio produced:

-Viuhkola 0+4
-Tenkrat 1+1
-Smyth 3+1

as Kärpät beat Saipa 9 - 0...

Strengths:
-exellent two way player
-passing
-makes important goals
-facoffs
-above all, great hockey sense & quick wits in the game

Weaknesses:
-mobility?
-inconsistent sometimes - maybe due to poor line mates until recently

More knowledgeable people may correct my opinion...
