REPORT: TAPPARA @ HIFK U18, FEBRUARY 23, 2019

Seppälä centered the first line for Tappara U18 against HIFK and scored the 2-1 goal in the first period. He was quick to a loose puck, fired a wrister on the shortside from close range and put his own rebound home. Seppälä is a skilled playmaking center with very good passing skills and quick hands. He gave smart, simple enough passes and found his teammates with relative ease. He also showcased a quick wrist shot when opting to shoot the puck. Even though he doesn’t have blazing top-end speed, he’s a fluid skater who can be tough to contain along the boards due to his quickness and ability to evade checks. His decision making was pretty good in all three zones and he looked proactive to the play. He managed quite well at face-offs.
