1-time World Championship Gold Medal 1
1-time World Championship Silver Medal 1
1-time SHL Champion 1
2-time SM-liiga Champion 2

A skilled and smart two-way forward with nice wheels considering his size. More of a hard-working role player, but has some offensive upside as well. (Matias Strozyk, 2011)
