OTSO RANTAKARI  Finland

Open print friendly window (pop-up) views: 35869

BIRTHYEAR 1993-11-19 BIRTHPLACEEspoo, FIN
AGE 22 NATION Finland
POSITION D SHOOTS R
HEIGHT 182 cm / 6'0" WEIGHT 83 kg / 183 lbs
YOUTH TEAM Jokerit CONTRACT 15/16


Smooth-skating Rantakari is very talented offensive defenseman who likes to join the rush. A powerplay specialist, he possesses a really good and accurate shot. Not a very physical player, though. Could improve his defensive game a bit, too.
