REPORT: LUKKO @ BLUES U18, SEPTEMBER 29, 2019

Ervasti played in all situations and was the top defenseman for Lukko U18 in the win over Blues. He was highly efficient defensively, he got his stick on the puck and protected the slot properly. He was quick to apply pressure on the opposing forwards and he consistently had good awareness of his surroundings. He displayed good puck moving abilities, giving crisp and accurate passes. A couple of times he was given room to maneuver and he carried the puck up the ice well on those occasions. He is a good pass receiver himself, as he can get pucks under control quickly. Ervasti has improved his foot speed and mobility since his HIFK U16 days, plus his first step looked more explosive. The right-shot blueliner has some nice upside because of his versatility and steady three-zone game.
