Yet another ‘two-way winger’ who can skate with decent size. There are quite a few of these that I have ranked in the 2nd round that don’t quite have enough upside to say that they’d be top-6 forwards in the NHL. Kuokkanen is one of the better ones though, he’s a hell of a skater and has a solid all-around game. He’s a 200ft player and a hard worker…he could surprise.
