TEEMU RIIHIJÄRVI  Finland Open print friendly window (pop-up)

BIRTHYEAR 1977-03-01 BIRTHPLACEEspoo, FIN
AGE 38 NATION Finland
POSITION RW SHOOTS L
HEIGHT 198 cm / 6'6" WEIGHT 97 kg / 214 lbs
YOUTH TEAM EJK STATUS Retired
NHL DRAFT 1995 round 1 #12 overall by San Jose Sharks


Riihijärvi is among the biggest players in the Swedish Elite League. He is an average skater, has a mediocre shot but is still useful as a 3rd, 4th-line player. He does not play overly physical, but when he plays the body few can match his strength.

By many considered as one of the biggest NHL busts ever, after being drafted 12th overall by San Jose, but never really being close to the NHL.
