Here are some stats about him (this season) A-jun league:
TPS A GP G A P + - PIM Shots Scoring %
Korpikoski Lauri 34 12 7 19 23 12 +11 18 111 10,81
28.07.1986 Turku FIN 182 77 L
I saw him play today HIFK A-TPS A (1-2)
I think his best strengths are in playing one against one and reading the game.
He has a good shot and his passing skills are pretty good.
He is not a playmaker like Jarmo Jokila, Korpikoski is more selfish and goes straight for the net when he has the puck. He is pretty fast and likes to challenge defencemen, and usually he wins the battles.
He plays in the first line together with Lasse Lintula and Jussi Makkonen(?).
He may have potential even to the NHL.
Here are the stats of the U-18 tournament held in Finland
