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

Joensuu is a powerful winger with tremendous size. Strong in the corners and tough along the boards. A very good forechecker, too. Also has some offensive ability and is a good net-front presence.
- Erik K. Piri, EP (2015)
