What seperates it from the CHL is the heavy emphasis on defense.The USHL has long been considered a defensive league which is why even the best prospects stats are lower there such as Gagner, Carlson, Moore when they played in that league.The NCAA is much more fast paced hockey , run and gun style of hockey where skill thrives. There are stronger players obviously due to the ages of the players and the work-out programs. There is also a suspension for fighting in this league and players wear full cages. Because it is a skilled league teams often advise players they pick which route is best for them. There was and arguemnt which James Van Riemsdyk going to New Hampshire and the NCAA in general over Brampton of the OHL because JVR is built for a power forward roll in the NHL and he would better learn to play a physical style playing in the OHL. Not to mention New Hampshire where he played plays in is an olympic ice surface . Lukily he turned out alright developed his skills, and is learning to use his body slowly in the NHL.

So, it was about three years ago when people started to talk about Granlund, Rajala, Pulkkinen etc 91-92 born prospects. Do we have any info on the 95-96 born players? 93-borns are a potential age group (Salomäki, Granlund, Aaltonen, Niemitalo, Salminen just to name a few), 94-borns seem to be another off-year for us...but what about the 95 or 96-borns? Any names to follow? How those age groups look in general, compared to 91-93borns, at this point?

Artturi Lehkonen & Jonatan Tanus are the two top players of -95's. Statswise, they both are very close to RGP at the same age. Tanus is also the captain of his team altought he's one year younger than most players in his team.

Then there is Joose Antonen, Juuso Ikonen, Sasha Barkov, Oskari Ojanen, Niklas Lehtimäki, Jere Friberg, Sami Anttila, Aleksi Mustonen, Timi Lahtinen, Mikael Vihriälä, Julius Valtonen, Robin Kokkonen ect.

95's are definetly up there with 91-92's.

From 96's the top players are Kalpa juniors Miikka Pitkänen & Kasperi Kapanen (son of Sami Kapanen) & Mikko Rantanen (TPS). Like tormentor mentioned.

Then there is Miro & Atte Mäkinen (Jokerit) & Antton Mönkäre (GrIFK).

Seems to be quite promising age group also, but we will see...

Top scoring 95-born in Jr.C so far this season:
5 TANUS Jonatan Tappara 10 gp 11+14=25
16 IKONEN Juuso Blues 10 gp 6+12=18
17 LEHKONEN Artturi TPS 6 gp 10+7=17
18 ANTTILA Sami Kärpät 10 gp 9+8=17
21 ANTONEN Joose Ilves 8 gp 6+10=16
26 BARKOV Sasha Tappara 10 gp 7+7=14
31 MUSTONEN Aleksi Jokerit 10 gp 2+11=13
37 FRIBERG Jere Lukko 10 gp 5+6=11
58 KINNUNEN Saku KalPa 9 gp 5+4=9
62 SEPPÄNEN Arttu HPK 10 gp 4+5=9
77 LEHTIMÄKI Niklas Ässät 6 gp 4+4=8
89 PUHAKKA Janne Blues 11 gp 4+3=7
90 TORNBERG Reko Kärpät 12 gp 4+3=7 (D)
100 KOPONEN Janne KalPa 9 gp 1+6=7 (D)

From these players I’ve so far seen Jonatan Tanus, Juuso Ikonen, Sami Anttila, Sasha Barkov, Aleksi Mustonen, Saku Kinnunen, Niklas Lehtimäki, Janne Puhakka, Reko Tornberg and Janne Koponen. They are all good prospects, but IMO not quite as good as Rajala, Pulkkinen and Granlund were at the same age.

I haven’t seen Artturi Lehkonen, Joose Antonen, Jere Friberg and Arttu Seppänen yet. Judging by his PPG production Lehkonen could be a similar youth star as Rajala, Pulkkinen and Granlund were. I would like to hear about him, if someone has seen him play…

One player from this age group that I really like is Eetu Koivistoinen; a big, strong and skilled forward from Espoo Blues.

There seems to be a lot of promising goalies in this age group and some of them are already playing on a good level in Jr.C;
1 NIKU Juho JYP 5gpi, 2.75gaa, 93.33S%
2 HUSSO Ville HIFK 6gpi, 2.33gaa, 93.26S%
4 LANKINEN Kevin K-Vantaa 9gpi, 3.64gaa, 91.69S%
5 SAROS Juuse HPK 7gpi, 3.54gaa, 90.87S%

96-born:
I haven’t seen any of the top players from south, but Miikka Pitkänen and Kasper Kapanen are skilled players with good hockey sense and vision. They should be something special if they stay healthy and motivated.

A bit over a month to Pohjola-camp, so I decided to check the stats of 95-born players in Jr.C so far.

95-born Forwards with at least 10 points in Jr.C:
1. F TANUS Jonatan Tappara 17gp 16+19=35p
2. F IKONEN Juuso Blues 19gp 11+16=27p
3. F BARKOV Sasha Tappara 17gp 9+17=26p
4. F ANTTILA Sami Kärpät 15gp 13+12=25p
5. F LEHKONEN Artturi TPS 10gp 11+11=22p
6. F MUSTONEN Aleksi Jokerit 17gp 4+17=21p
7. F ANTONEN Joose Ilves 13gp 7+13=20p
8. F FRIBERG Jere Lukko 19gp 7+13=20p
9. F LEHTIMÄKI Niklas Ässät 15gp 8+8=16p
10. F SIIKI Oskari TPS 19gp 7+5=12p
11. F KINNUNEN Saku KalPa 18gp 6+6=12p
12. F WESTERMARCK Felix Blues 18gp 4+7=11p
13. F PUHAKKA Janne Blues 19gp 4+6=10p
14. F SEPPÄNEN Arttu HPK 12gp 4+6=10p
15. F OJANTAKANEN Kasperi Jokerit 12gp 3+7=10p

95-born Defensemen with at least 5 points in Jr.C:
1. D TORNBERG Reko Kärpät 17gp 5+6=11p
2. D KOPONEN Janne KalPa 18gp 3+8=11p
3. D AURIA Miska HIFK 13gp 3+6=9p
4. D LINTUNIEMI Alex HIFK 17gp 2+6=8p
5. D LEVO Mikke Ilves 17gp 4+3=7p
6. D ILVONEN Mika Blues 19gp 0+7=7p
7. D ERONEN Elmeri TPS 19gp 2+3=5p

In addition there’s one 95-born defenseman playing fairly well in C-1-Div:
D MALKAMÄKI Topi Hermes 9gp 7g+10a=17p

Top 95-born Goalies in Jr.C:
1. GK HUSSO Ville HIFK 13gpi 2.16-gaa 93.67-S%
2. GK NIKU Juho JYP 10gpi 2.77-gaa 92.35-S%
3. GK LANKINEN Kevin K-Vantaa 14gpi 3.58-gaa 91.71-S%
4. GK SAROS Juuse HPK 11gpi 4.01-gaa 90.74-S%

I briefly saw both Ville Husso and Kevin Lankinen play last weekend, and I must say that they both looked like very promising goalies. Both are athletic, quick and already play on a high level. It's fairly certain that this age class won't have problems with finding a good goalie for the national team as there are several promising goalies available.

He's certainly one of the most promising 94-born Finnish forwards that I've seen so far this season. He's an intelligent player offensively and one thing that really stood out from his game was his passing skills, they are great. Nice accurate saucer passes straight from skating and even when under pressure. His one-on-one skills are also pretty good and one can imagine that his game will improve considerably once he gets more muscle to that somewhat skinny frame. Personally I see Teräväinen's potential to be higher than for example Miro-Pekka Saarelainen's or Oskari Lehtinen's, simply because of the higher skill level and the fact that he can improve a lot physically.

Jatkoaika.com poster "Ole Fart", who seems to follow Jokerit juniors a lot, described Teräväinen as having quick feet, quick hands and a quick head. "A lot of skill, not a booming shot, scores most of his goals near the goal." Has decent size for a 15 year old (176 cm, around 5'9). So far this season he has 21 points (13+8) in 16 games with the B-juniors and 29 points (14+15) in 8 games with the C-juniors. I don't suppose any one here has seen another player from the Jokerit C-juniors squad that "Ole Fart" raved about, defenseman Mikko Piisinen? Apparently he has a phenomenal wristshot.

The kid has phenomenal strength considering his age, really powerful skater on a straight line. I don't know about his wrist shot, but at least his slap shot is thundering. From what I've seen, 94-born age group has the best defensive crop in years. There are plenty of fairly promising defensemen that are already over 180cm tall, Piisinen being one of them.

Tokoi and Dufva

Both are now back in Finland. I know that Dufva's return had something to do with a hip injury but don't know much about Tokoi. Any news about his time in PEI?

This is the only one that I've come across:
Rocket’s Tokoi Returning Home (evenstrength.com)

In the end it's not that big of a surprise that he didn't succeed in NA, he was just an average prospect in Finland without much experience of playing in Jr.A. After his return he has played 6 games with Ilves Jr.A team, no points and he’s -4.
