REPORT: HERMES @ K-VANTAA (MESTIS), JANUARY 4, 2019
Annunen had a busy night in net for Hermes, making 41 saves in a 4-3 win over Kiekko-Vantaa. 17 of the saves came in the third period. The 6-4 netminder looked calm and relaxed throughout the game. In the second period, he made a breakaway save in which he showed great patience. He did a good job of cutting down angles and overall his positioning was very good. Moreover, Annunen had a quick glove. On the downside, he did give up some rebounds, especially on low shots. He was more efficient at eliminating rebounds on high shots, trapping pucks into his body. He didn’t handle the puck a whole lot but he did stop the puck behind the net a couple of times.
