Highlights
1-time U20 WJC Bronze Medal 1

One of the youngest players eligible for the 2020 draft, Rajaniemi has seen a big increase in his ice time this season and has been trusted to quarterback the top power play unit. Rajaniemi makes simple passes and can utilize a heavy shot from time to time. Rajaniemi did fine shutting down offence coming his way. He's a tough customer along the boards with his 6-foot-4 frame. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
