    This guy is eligible in 2005. He was selected the top defenseman at the Viking Cup and he is having a great U18 tournament (5 gp 2 goals 6 assist 18 pen).

    LAAKSO Teemu D R 184 / 6'0'' 85 / 187 27.08.1987

    I would like to know if this guy could go in the first round of 2005. What type of player is he. what are his strenths and weaknesses.

    Thanks

    Laakso is battling Risto Korhonen for the title of the best Finnish skater in next summer's draft class. He's pretty physical and has notable offensive upside. A good skater, obviously. The details are pretty blurry to me, I've seen him play only once.

    I´ve seen hime play. He came from the bushes last summer. didn´t play any U17 matches, went directly to the U18 team. He plays for the HIFK A juniors.
    Plays the first season for HIFK.
    Played a good season.
    Regular season: Laakso Teemu 41 3 6 9
    Playoffs: Laakso Teemu 3 0 1 1
    He is a fast skater. He´s exellent with the puck. Plays alot of PP. Has a great shot.
    The puckhandling and the eye for the game are great.
    Here is a link on Laakso(just in finnish):
