    This kid has been one of the biggest suprises to me in WJC. He has played very maturely and has proven his skills at defence by playing simple but effective game. Also he has showed of his pretty good offensive skills by scoring so far 3 points (1+2 /+3) but has shown some pretty sweet passes and moves in offensive zone like we saw against Slovakia.

    His born 1991 and his undrafted if countinues same kind of playing I wouldn't be suprise if he could be drafted maybe in 2nd - 4th round at next year.

    Your thoughts about this kid?

    I agree with you, one of the biggest surprises on this years WJC. I think he will be picked in 3-5 round

    A team would really have to be high on him for that to happen. That being said, I expect him to get drafted. Didn't know much about the kid before this tournament, but I have been highly impressed by his play.

    I'm pretty sure he will be picked in late rounds.

    The Hockey New were apparently raving about him and Armia. If things don't go too wrong the rest of the tournament and season, he might get picked in higher rounds even. Shame that my best or rather worst memory of him in this tournament is the wasted 3-2 in the OT against the USA, he had Vatanen and Pulkkinen on his right but what does he do, puts an easy shot on goal. :shakehead :facepalm:
