Highlights
1-time U20 WJC Bronze Medal 1

He takes phenomenal care of the puck, can distribute through layers in the neutral zone, isn't afraid to use the centre of the ice, and just displays a high level of competence with the puck on his stick. Niemela smartly scans the ice with shoulder checks as he skates to collect the puck, then smartly and decisively acts in a way that quickly moves play in the other direction. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide

Father: Tapio Niemelä

A mobile offensive defenseman, doesn’t hesitate whenever he has a chance to shoot.. needs to limit turnovers against intense forecheck, Draftin Europe 2018
