REPORT: LUKKO @ BLUES U16, OCTOBER 7, 2017
Hämäläinen stood out as one of the best players in the U16 game between Blues and Lukko. He has really quick first few steps and a low center of gravity, making him such an explosive skater and difficult to knock off the puck. Importantly, he knows how to utilize his speed on the rush and oftentimes cuts inside to get to the net with the puck. He showed great scoring drive and determination, which is the way he usually plays. He is fearless and plays with plenty of intensity, constantly being involved on both sides of the puck. Hämäläinen also made a lot of smart puck distributions in the offensive zone.
