Height / Weight: 5-9 / 181
Eppu Varjamo was one of the standouts for Ilves U18 in the 2017-18 season. He led the team in scoring with 23 goals and 23 assists. Varjamo has a very quick wrist shot and can beat goalies from further out. He can finish off his chances effectively. Varjamo is also poised and smart on the power play. He carries the puck confidently and can stickhandle in tight. The 5’9 center is not the biggest of players, however, he’s tenacious, likes to play rough and finishes his checks quite consistently. He’s a smooth skater with good edge work. He could work on his top-end speed which is average, however. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of a role he will have on Ilves U20 in the 2018-19 season.
