A skilled handler and occasional manipulator, Kukkonen beats defenders with fakes, changes of pace, and crafty dekes. Patience allows him to turn front pressure into backpressure, and he consistently brings the puck to the middle. Most effective as a playmaker, he deceives and looks for teammates off the backhand. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide
