Director of European Scouting Goran Stubb:
“He was one of the reasons why Tappara finished second in the league. Just consistent, cool, smart two-way center. An injured shoulder (kept) him out the remainder of the season, but that won’t hurt his high draft status. Always seems to be in the right spot at the right time. He’s a very good stickhandler with great vision.”
