Otto Koivula
Koivula could be a very good player at the pro level. He has soft hands for a 6-4 forward. His vision is really good and he can drive to the net both with and without the puck. His accurate shot can also be seen as an asset. However, his skating and speed will definitely have to get better. He’s lacking agility and acceleration at the moment. He put up 58 points for Ilves U20, plus finished second in scoring in playoff with 5-7-12 line. Koivula could be a great value pick in the fourth or fifth round.
