Puhakka made a very positive impression in his first games with Tappara’s Liiga team. He played with high effort and showed he can play up and down the roster. He got power play time and displayed quality passing skills and smooth hands. He is a fluid skater with a quick stride. His acceleration and first-step quickness are very good. Well-rounded for his age, played smart and processed the game quickly. Active away from the puck. If he keeps playing well for the remainder of the preseason, I think he may start the regular season in the Liiga instead of going back to juniors. His game is trending upwards.
