REPORT: KÄRPÄT @ HIFK U18, JANUARY 6, 2019

Juusola registered two assists and was relied upon in crucial moments of the game as Kärpät U18 smashed HIFK 9-0. He’s a competent and intelligent two-way defenseman who shows promise at both ends of the ice. His positioning in the defensive zone was solid, especially in front of the net. He has a very good shot selection, he showcased a high-velocity wrist shot, as well as a hard slap shot from the point. He moved the puck effectively and got pucks up the ice quickly. Moreover, he’s a strong skater with quick feet and good mobility. Juusola is the top 2003 born Finnish defenseman in my book at the moment, and he has the potential to develop into a very good player down the road.
