Highlights
1-time U18 WJC All-Star Team 1

He reloads to swing wide on his team’s breakout, collects the puck in stride, accelerates through knee-over-knee crossovers, and drives play across the offensive blue line. Blink, and you just might miss him. Tuomaala has a wicked wrist shot, and he can get it off in-stride from either foot. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide

Father: Pasi Tuomaala

Tuomaala’s game is all about speed and shooting, sometimes even to his detriment, EPRinkside.com 2021
