Miettinen was one of the most noticeable players on the ice as Blues U16 edged Jokerit 6-0. His playmaking skills were on full display throughout the game, he distributed the puck to his wingers in a timely manner and his passing was excellent on the power play, where he found seams in the final third. He doesn’t have blazing top-end speed when in motion, but he’s an agile skater with good quickness in his first few strides. One of Miettinen’s biggest strengths is his ability to make plays in tight spaces. He remained poised and made the right choices with the puck when under pressure. He has lots of potential as a smart and skilled center who makes plays in all areas of the ice.
