    When I was writing for Hockey's Future there always seemed to be a handful of these guys that I'd have to cover because they seemed to mature into prospects after their draft eligibility had passed.

    One such player I am curious about is Teemu Turunen of HPK. It seems he's having a pretty good season and that is one of the surprise teams of Liiga.

    Does he have any NHL potential and are there other players in that age range who I should watch as potentially being signed this summer?

    He will absolutely not get signed.

    Turunen is only a rookie and doesn't really have any qualities to would make him worth signing this season. Maybe in a couple of years.

    LW Henrik Haapala
    C Antti Suomela
    LW Erik Thorell
    LD Jesse Virtanen
    RW Sebastian Repo

    These are some young players who have been playing well and there might be some interest on them. No real standouts and surefire NHL players this year though. Haapala is good but his size might be an issue for NHL.

    Just revisiting this. Repo drafted and then Suomela was recently signed.

    How you see Linus Nyman's situation?
    He got passed again in NHL draft and if he won't get drafted next year do you see there's some NHL team who's ready to sign him as a free-agent.
