    He is from Finish parents and has spent time in all over playing hockey. But he is playing for team USA and is considered a US prospect.

    I don't like this. The other countries are stealing our names. Kai Kantola, Matt Niskanen, Dwight Helminen...

    He has some pretty decent skills but sometimes has trouble using them all since he is kind of weak. In a year or 2 when he has 10-15 lbs more on him he will be alot more effective at most likely the D-1 level.

    Kai Kantola had a strong game for the US in their tournament opener at the Viking Cup. He is being overshadowed by the Okposo/Lewis/Vande Velde line but Kantola showed decent speed and hands in the opening 8-4 win for the US over Slovakia.

    I am on the boradcast team and am doing about half the games so if you have questions... start a new thread and I'll see what I can answer for you.

    Could be great PA if the Hurricanes take a local kid in the draft.
