    He's so close to being 6'0", so definitely should be good for his ranking.

    His transition game, wether it be with his feet or his passing, is world class.

    Nope. This height is the already deducted height. So he is about 6 feet tall.

    He was 6'1 188lbs with shoes so around 6'0 sounds about right.

    Love the pick, he's in the same talent tier as the Finns who went before him.

    Love it too. Saw the Winterhawks here in Seattle twice and he stood out. Solid both ways. I personally had him at #18.

    The prospect fan in me is disappointed but the Silvertip fan in me is relieved that the U.S. division will be less fierce this season. Wonder how long he'll be out for. That's a shame :(

    Knee. Four weeks until skating, probably there for the season start.

    This thread must continue!

    Jokiharju's stats this season seem really impressive! Seems to be the best defenceman in the team this season.

    Has anyone seen him playing? How has he looked?

    Kinda strange how little has Jokiharju gotten attention this season.
    (last 8 games: 1+14=15 +13)

    Leads all D-men +/- +31
    Leads all D-men PP assists 12
    Is second in D-men points 6+24=30
    Is second in D-men assists 24
    Is second in D-men ppg avg 1.36
    Is fourth in D-men sog 73

    Jokiharju is Blackhawks 2017 1st round pick (29th overall)

    Finland's dcore for the upcoming WJC is just insane, for our country it's the best ever on paper without a doubt. Unheard of that we have this kind of a player available, but is not guaranteed to be playing top 4 minutes (Heiskanen, Välimäki, Juolevi and possibly Vaakanainen ahead of him).

    I agree with you definitely. But the talent I see in Jokiharju is that special that I wouldn’t be really surprised if he would pan out as the second best defenceman of this Finnish group in his prime. I can’t see a possibility that Heiskanen wouldn’t be the best of them, but Jokiharju could really be the the closest to Heiskanen’s class in their primes.

    I have seen him play in about 20 games during the last 1,5 years, and dare to say on the basis of that, that he is in fact not very far defensively from Heiskanen. Not as good, but there are similarities. He has a good stick, reads plays well and has very good skating too.

    Agreed. He may have to drive the play on the third defensive pair with Heiskanen, Välimäki, Juolevi beating him on the depth chart.
