REPORT: TUTO @ KIEKKO-VANTAA (MESTIS), OCTOBER 18, 2017

Halme played slightly under nine minutes in his fifth game at the second highest level in Finland. The left wing had a few good moments offensively in the game. In the third period, he displayed quick bursts of acceleration to pull away from defender for a breakaway chance, but wasn’t able to finish from backhand. He’s a fluid skater, fairly agile and he played with urgency, both with and without the puck. He created some offense through timely passes. However, he’ll need to move the puck quicker in the defensive zone, as he made a pair of sloppy passes under pressure. His positioning, anticipation and play reading away from the puck also need some adjustments. The USHL Clark Cup champion with the Chicago Steel can certainly skate and flashed his offensive ability, however.
