Laituri, eh or Padawan might know a little about him. Since he spent almost all of the season in juniors, not many people here have seen him in action.

There have been so many Piispanen threads that I'm sure you can find one of them with the search function. He had a good first half of the season, but couldn't quite keep up the scoring pace during the latter part. He's just as skinny as he always was. He still remains a project, but the potential is there. There aren't too many 6'4" guys with his puck skills around. I'm a bit worried about his progress because he looked better early in the season than during the spring.

Btw, he was transferred form Jokerit back to his original home town team JYP Jyväskylä, where he'll have more of a chance to play in SM-liiga instead of remaining in the juniors for one more year.

That seems to be gone for some reason. But try to look for topics from the older pages.

More info on Arsi's first half of the season here. As I already said, the second half wasn't quite as good. He did dress for some playoff games of the senior team when they had injury troubles, but didn't play a shift, IIRC.

He is set to start with the JYP A junior team according to JYP's official site. I would like to see him as a regular in JYP's SM-Liiga team but it seems that JYP's management has different plans for him.

That's not really a surprise, he's mostly useful in an offensive role and he's not strong enough to play regularly in SM-liiga yet. Anyway, he has a better chance of making the senior team in JYP.
