Highlights
1-time SM-liiga Champion 1

Leino is a skilled player who can play any forward position. Has good hands, puck control, and passing ability. Moves the puck with great confidence and likes to hold on to it and do fancy stuff at times. Defensive game and skating is not quite as impressive. (EP 2012)
