SOCIAL Tapio Laakso Instagram 


Laakso is a hard-working center. He is good in face-offs and reliable at both ends of the ice. Laakso has very good defensive skills and is an excellent penalty killer. He has a very high work-ethic, good physique and excellent leadership qualities. Laakso isn't an offensive threat and hasn't displayed the necessary skill-set to log large point-totals, which has profiled him as more of a bottom-six center. (Matias Strozyk, 2011)
