Julius Nättinen

http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=85961

this guy is only 13 years old and already playing Jr. C. I don't think this is very common.
Plus he's got great size for his age (5'10, 150lbs). Obviously it's WAY too early to tell but could this kid be something special?

also he's 3+5 in his last 4 games

He's a special kid and a very good hockey player for his age. Maybe not quite as flashy as for example Rajala or Granlund were at this age, but this kid is tall and he still has plenty of time to hone his skill set, which is already pretty impressive. A lot will depend on the amount of work that he's willing to do.

It's fairly easy to score in Jr.C, so Jr.B will be a lot better yardstick once he reaches that level. Hopefully he stays healthy since too many promising Finnish players have suffered from multiple injuries. Finnish hockey needs new stars since old ones are retiring. JYP seems to be doing something right with their juniors; first Vatanen (-91), then Määttä (-94), and now hopefully Nättinen (-97).

thanks for the help man! Exciting to see how this guy develops. When can we expect this kid to show up in the U16 national team?

After 2012 Pohjola camp.

so one can't play in U16 NT unless he's been to the Pohjola camp?

Actually I just assume because Teemu Pulkkinen and Mikael Granlund didn't played in U16 national team before Pohjola camp. Even though they did great stats in C-juniors on that season.

Pulkkinen played 11 games and did 21 goal + 22 assist
Granlund played 11games and did 20 goal and 17 assist

And for example Toni Kluuskeri who has borned 1991 played 11 games and did 8 goal and 12 assist and still played 11 games in U16 national team. There's lot of good examples but I won't write all of those.

So I just supposed that you can't play in national team before Pohjola camp.

Mikael Granlund´s stats when he was 13-14y old:
2005-2006 Laser HT U16 Jr. C SM-sarja Q 11 9+16=25
Laser HT U16 Jr. C SM-sarja 13 11+10=21

Nättinen has:
2010-2011 JYP U16 Jr. C SM-sarja Q 10 13+10=23
JYP U16 Jr. C SM-sarja 13 6+5=11

I think few people know that Mikael actually played in C-juniors for two years (05-06+06-07). Nättinen seems to have the edge in size and he might be even close to 190cm, because he is already 178cm now. Very interesting to see how he continues.

Tormentor, do you have any specific report on his strenghts and weaknesses?

Two of his older brothers play hockey, Jussi is 180cm tall and Joonas is 189cm tall. Seeing that Julius is already close to 180cm, it's not out of the question that he grows to be ~190cm.

He played centre forward in a game that I saw earlier this season. He looked lean and pretty weak strength wise, so his game isn't based on physical factors. I don't think he'll turn into a player like Jesse Joensuu.

In Jr.C Toni Rajala was known for his incredible skating, and Mikael Granlund for his puck handling and hockey sense. As of now, it's hard to point into a specific area or skill that would be Julius' bread and butter. It's the overall package and skill level which enable him to already play in Jr.C. He's a skilled kid, but his moves don't yet make the crowd go "WHOA" on a regular basis. Since he's still a double "under-ager" in Jr.C, maybe it's better that we wait another year before trying to analyze his game in more detail. One well trained summer could have a huge impact at this age.

Looks good. Interesting that Julius has the exact same pace as his older brother Joonas did in C-SM, except he is a full calender year younger. Both have January birthday, so they are perfectly comparable:

Joonas 14-15 old:
2005-2006
JYP U16 Jr. C SM-sarja Q 11 5 15 20
JYP U16 Jr. C SM-sarja 13 5 6 11

Julius 13-14 old:
2010-2011
JYP U16 Jr. C SM-sarja Q 10 13 10 23
JYP U16 Jr. C SM-sarja 13 6 5 11


EDIT: Is Topi related to the other boys? http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=43568

Based on my viewings of Nättinen, my scouting report on him would be something like this:

Big forward, looked about 6´1" when I saw him live last week at World Selects. He has soft hands, pretty good vision and a good shot, but he is more of a playmaker than a scorer. His skating doesn´t look like a huge strength but not a big weakness either, however it is something that he can improve. He´s got the size and skill, but he just needs to refine some things in his game, including the first strides and acceleration.
