Notes and Observations

Latvala has been playing excellent hockey for Jokerit U18 lately. He came up big in a 6-5 overtime win against Pelicans this past weekend, scoring a shorthanded goal and adding two primary assists in the third period. He played in all situations for Jokerit. The 5’10” center is a strong skater with very good acceleration and solid top speed. He has impressive technical skills and he makes productive passes. He can be slick with the puck. He’s tenacious and he uses his speed to hunt down pucks in the offensive zone. Overall, he is a skilled, determined and versatile player. Latvala began the season with Kiekko-Vantaa U20 and put up respectable numbers. In November 2019, he made his debut in Finland’s second-highest league at the age of 16. March 2, 2020
