Highlights
1-time U20 WJC Silver Medal 1

It's Määttä's defensive ability that generates value. He's so hard on the puck, so unrelenting on defensive zone retrievals, and unafraid to engage physically when the moment calls for it. Hell, he put a Black Hawks player on his ass mere seconds after losing the opening faceoff. He reverse hit another Black Hawks player in the second. He's sturdy. Perhaps a bit too sturdy. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
