REPORT: KOOKOO @ K-VANTAA U20, MARCH 6, 2019

Oden was noticeable throughout the game and played in all situations in a 3-2 overtime win against K-Vantaa. An agile and fast skater with very good speed, he can be tough to contain off the rush and in the final third. He’s got the ability to make quick turns in tight spaces and he can also create separation from defenders in a hurry. He was often disruptive on the puck carrier as his speed enabled him to close gaps quickly. The winger also displayed good puck handling skills and a solid wrist shot with good velocity on it. He made smart passes in the offensive zone and gave up the puck to his teammates at the right times. Oden could still play a more physical and tougher game, however, his combination of speed and skill makes him an intriguing prospect.
