Highlights
1-time Liiga Golden Helmet 1
1-time Liiga All-Star Team 1
1-time Liiga Best Player of Regular Season (Lasse Oksanen Award) 1

Keränen is a skilled offensive minded forward. A fast and flashy dangler who likes to challenge the opponents. Able to set up his team mates with deft passes, but also to score by himself. Not a slouch defensively, but his talent goes to waste as a bottom six. A bit of a late bloomer. (EP 2014)
