Highlights
1-time World Championship Gold Medal 1
1-time ICEHL Champion 1

A tall and strong goalie who covers the net very well. Good posture, technique and movement. Saves initial attempts well, but sometimes struggles to recover after a save and is therefore vulnerable to rebounds. Excellent work ethic. (Matias Strozyk)

Brothers: Rami Hovinen & Miro Hovinen
