HIGHLIGHTS
1-time U18 WJC Silver Medal 1

A smart forward with a dangerous shot, Kotkaniemi possesses a high hockey IQ and determination with the skills to back it up. Positions himself well and often seems to be a step ahead of plays. Stickhandling and creativity allow him to split professional defences as a teenager. Decent size and frame, yet a very capable skater. (Matias Strozyk, 2017) Father: Mikael Kotkaniemi
Brother: Kasperi Kotkaniemi

He’s a powerful skater with good speed, and he used his strength to outmuscle opponents off the puck, thedraftanalyst.com 2017
