Lepistö is an offensively skilled defenseman with good hockey sense. His major strength is the way he moves the puck. Furthermore, he is strong mentally, passes the puck well and has a decent release. Could use some work with his skating, the physical game and his defensive play.

Father: Jussi Lepistö
