Nurmi was noticeable in almost every shift in the first period. He is a very good skater with speed, balance and strong acceleration, he could fly past a K-Espoo defenseman and get a wrister on net from the slot. He set up KooKoo’s first goal showing his speed and vision on a quick pass off the rush. He made a great diagonal pass in the neutral zone as well – a superb passer. He was alert in his own end and showed awareness of his surroundings in all three zones. He played smart and constantly knew where the play was headed. Despite his young age, there aren’t many holes in his game right now and he is already one of the top players on this KooKoo U18 team.
