    ( i just thought,..well, why not create a thread for Leevi, deserves it or not)

    Position: Forward
    Shoots: R
    Height: 5 foot 11
    Weight: 179 lbs
    Age: 18
    1st Draft Eligible Year: 2018 (undrafted)

    Not sure will any of Teemu's kids ever become anything, but it seems (at least at the moment)
    Leevi (the youngest) is the one who's got best odds.

    Eemil (the oldest) lost his interest in hockey few years ago
    Eetu (the middle) tries really hard, but he just is not good enough in the NCAA (at the moment).

    ---

    After playing two years for u16&18 Junior Ducks, Leevi switched to play for Jokerit organization
    and went to Finland, at the moment he plays in the Junior B Sm-Liiga.

    18-19 | 1g+3a=4pts | 0.80 ppg

    I would be surprised if he ever makes Liiga level.

    He's outscored by 16 years old player on his team.

    I assume he won't go very far in hockey.

    He played High School hockey in Sourthern California. Played against him last year in a Tournament. Solid mid level Midget AAA player but nothing special

    It's pretty safe to say if you're 18 and playing in B-juniors (and not dominating) you're probably not going to make it to the big leagues. Even guys of his age who do well in A-juniors don't always get more than a look in Liiga.
