Noiva played on Jokerit U18 third line and recorded three assists in a convincing 7-3 win. He showed plenty of puck skill, as well as some impressive creativity and deception. He was confident, he could keep the puck close to his body and his stickhandling was very good. He also has an accurate wrist shot and he can release it from his stick without much set up. He did a good job of winning puck battles with his sturdy stick work. Noiva had good chemistry with his linemates which was also a positive. On the downside, he does not have the smoothest or the most productive stride and his acceleration could also be stronger. He needs to work on improving certain technical aspects of his skating, however, he is quite shifty in small spaces. All in all, Noiva is a skilled winger who can make difficult plays look easy, which was the case in this game.
