Virkki is an all-around defenseman with a good frame and good reach. Not much of a threat in the offense by himself, but able to make plays and bring the puck up. Able to play the body, but prioritizes positioning over physical play. Responsible, reliable and consistent. (EP 2016)

A solid leader who brings grit to defense, Elmo Aittola (TUTO Hockey Sports Manager) 2014
