REPORT: TPS @ BLUES U18, SEPTEMBER 8, 2017
Pärssinen played a well-rounded game while centering TPS’ third line and receiving ice-time on special teams. He consistently provided support for his teammates and he was effective in front of the net, gaining the position for possible deflections on point shots. His hockey sense and compete level away from the puck stood out. He created a scoring chance in the second period with a terrific forecheck and stole the puck away. He had good skating mechanics to build on: long, powerful strides and fairly good agility. Pärssinen once turned the puck over dangerously in the defensive end, however, he also made a few nice passes in the final third. He didn’t make many high-end plays but nevertheless had a good performance.
