Highlights
1-time World Championship Silver Medal 1
1-time World Championship Bronze Medal 1
5-time SM-liiga Champion 5

A skilled two-way center with good hockey sense. Viuhkola handles the puck quite comfortably and is a capable playmaker. Also good on faceoffs.
On the downside, there are some consistency issues and his skating is average at best.
Son: Nooa Viuhkola
