JANNE NISKALA  Finland

Open print friendly window (pop-up) views: 90733

BIRTHYEAR 1981-09-22 BIRTHPLACEVästerås, SWE
AGE 33 NATION Finland
POSITION D SHOOTS L
HEIGHT 184 cm / 6'0" WEIGHT 91 kg / 201 lbs
YOUTH TEAM Lukko CONTRACT 16/17
NHL DRAFT 2004 round 5 #147 overall by Nashville Predators
SOCIAL  


A skilled defenseman with excellent offensive qualities. Is a very good passer, but might be a better shot. Both the slapshot and the wrister are very hard and accurate. Is a tremendous puck-mover and power play quarterback. Skates well and is very mobile.
Is inconsistent in his defensive positioning and his effort. Can get nonchalant and presumptious with the puck.
