Jiri Pärssinen

Born: 2002-05-24

Team: TPS U18

Position: Defenseman

Shoots: Right

Height / Weight: 6-0 / 172


Pärssinen was one of the top players on a strong TPS U16 team last season, despite appearing in only 19 regular season games. The right-shot defenseman has scored three points in four games with TPS U18 in the 2018-19 season. Pärssinen is an offensively gifted defenseman whose shot is a threat from the point. Has a powerful, heavy one-timer with good windup, as well as a quick wrist shot. He frequently activates from the point and handles the puck well in movement. In his own end, he makes subtle and smart plays with the puck. His reads are sharp and he’s alert without the puck. A decently agile skater, Pärssinen gets around the ice well and even though there’s some room for improvement, his skating doesn’t hold him back. September 25, 2018
