Highlights
1-time KHL Best Goaltender 1
1-time KHL First All-Star Team 1
1-time Liiga All-Star Team 1
1-time Liiga Best Goaltender (Urpo Ylönen Award) 1

Metsola is a goalie with terrific agility and anticipation. Has great reflexes and loves to come way out of his crease and challenge shooters. Is pretty small for a modern netminder, though.
- Ulf Andersson & Erik K. Piri, EP (2014)
