Highlights
1-time SM-liiga Champion 1

A smallish winger shooting from his right. An offense-first player with good puck control and a creative mind. A reliable point scorer who mostly relies on smarts and skill rather than strength and physicality. (Matias Strozyk, 2012)

Brother: Velimatti Virtanen
Cousin: Tuomas Haanpää
