    Sure. Fits the strategy at the draft and put up a lot of points last year. Fingers crossed.

    Leads the league by 12 points, yet ends up on the Leagues 2nd All Star Team.

    Typical Leaf hate.

    Absolute STEAL!!!

    From the Athletic yesterday I believe... he's very high on Hirvonen as well had him as a projected 1st rounder.

    "By 16, he had already been promoted to the under-20 level, where he’d immediately become a top forward on his team. By 17, a full year before his draft year due to his September 2001 birthday, Miettinen led his under-20 team in scoring with 61 points in 48 games, outscoring another of the draft’s top prospects, Roni Hirvonen (a projected first-round pick), in the process."

    Posted this earlier;

    Well now add Veeti Miettinen. In this mock he went 60th to Ottawa.

    15. Rodion Amirov (mocked 15th overall to Toronto)
    59. Roni Hirvonen (mocked 33th overall to Ottawa)
    64. Topi Niemla (mocked 44th overall to Toronto)
    168. Veeti Miettinen (mocked 60th overall to Ottawa)

    Seems like good value.

    They did a really good job with the mock this year. By I think 13 they had all their 13 taken but not the exact order. They've been good for a few years now. I've been following them since I started here in the 2008 draft. I just wish they could keep up with the traffic at draft time. The site freezes all the time the last couple days.

    Miettinen should be one candidate to make Finland's U20 WJC team.
    But nothing isn't set in stone yet.

    COVID19 is still extremely serious threat and a lot can happen before December 26th.
    It is not secret COVID19 can still cause cancellation of 2021 U20 WJC's.
