Born: 2000-10-03

Team: Sioux Falls Stampede (USHL)

Position: Center

Shoots: Left

Height / Weight: 5-10 / 150

REPORT: TAPPARA @ JOKERIT U18, February 3, 2018

Krannila centered the first line for Tappara U18, playing alongside Jere Kivimäki and Kasper Simontaival. Krannila is a smooth, quick skater with strong offensive skills and instincts. He’s somewhat lightweight but deceptive with the puck and can stickhandle and maneuver in tight spaces. Has an accurate wrist shot. He anticipates the play really well, both with and without the puck, and knows where his teammates are on the ice in order to feed them the puck. Krannila plays in all situations for his team. The USHL Draft pick of the Tri-City Storm has been a top forward in the U18 league this season.
