1-time U20 WJC Gold Medal 1
1-time World Championship Gold Medal 1

A quick-thinking winger, Kakko never seems to be in a rush. He reads the game exceptionally well and finds himself a step ahead while the play is still developing. He is confident with the puck and capable of handling it in small spaces. With his size, Kakko protects the puck well and uses his high hockey IQ to make smart offensive plays. Kakko excels offensively and beats opponents with smarts and skill both on and off the puck. (Matias Strozyk, EP 2018)

Family relations
Brother: Konsta Kakko

Adaptable with the puck, threading the needle through traffic to feed his teammates scoring chances or driving to the net-front himself, EPrinkside.com 2019
He’s near-impossible to push off of the puck, and that comes in handy when one spends as much time in tight to the opponent’s net as Kakko, EPrinkside.com 2019
Kakko’s hockey sense blends into his craftiness, leaving defenders without a lot of options when attempting to shutdown his game., Hockeyprospect.com 2019
Displaying spectacular puck skills, he’s strong in the corners and has shown that he’s a beast physically., Future Considerations 2019
As quick as his feet are, his hands are at least their equals, McKeen's Hockey 2019
