Sertti was one of the best players of the game as the Amarillo Bulls defeated the Topeka Pilots 6-1. The Bulls clearly outplayed and outshot their opponent and the Finnish defenseman was one of the cornerstones on the backend. Sertti was very effective in his own end. He used his size as an asset, kept forwards on the perimeter and limited their offensive opportunities. He was calm with the puck and made good outlet passes under pressure. He snapped precise passes when starting the breakout. He’s a powerful, rounded skater with pretty good speed. He showed good mobility and some flash on the offensive blueline. He also got on the scoresheet with two assists. The first one came off a heavy one-timer which created a rebound on the power play. He carried the puck into the zone and dished to the winger in a 3-on-2 attack for a shorthanded assist later in the first period. Sertti is committed to play for Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the 2020-21 season. Overall, he is a steady, effective defender with an offensive flair and good puck moving abilities. The tools to develop into a strong three-zone defenseman are there.
