REPORT: JOKERIT @ HIFK U20, AUGUST 7, 2018

The winger had a rather quiet game offensively and wasn’t around the puck a whole lot. Myllylä is a very strong skater with good endurance, allowing to play with high energy shift after shift. He has a powerful stride and above-average speed. He’s also highly agile, possessing the ability make tight turns and cuts. He was very quick to apply pressure. However, he needs to work on his play reading without the puck, as he was occasionally caught being too high in the offensive zone and chasing the play. He has a motor that never stops, and he was one of the hardest working players in the game, though. Myllylä also showcased decent puck skills and some offensive ability. It will be interesting to monitor his development this season, he has a chance to be a key player on this HIFK team.
