Kulonummi logged big minutes and had a strong performance for Jokerit U16 in a 3−2 win over KalPa. He showed some nice poise as he was not afraid to hold on to the puck and wait for good passing lanes to develop. More of a puck mover than rusher, but he did generate two pretty good zone entries. His puck protection and stickhandling skills were both good, allowing him to make plays in tight quarters. He had good hands and he made some nifty moves to evade forecheckers before starting the play up the ice. He was confident in his decisions throughout the game. He played with his head on a swivel and showed awareness without the puck. A very athletic right−shot defenseman whose mobility, puck moving abilities and hockey sense stand out at this level.
