Highlights

2-time World Championship Silver Medal 2
1-time World Championship Bronze Medal 1
4-time SM-liiga Champion 4

Has great versatility, and can play both left wing and center. A two-way forward who is very good off the puck. Was a primarily a checker in the past, but then elevated his offensive game and started scoring points. Good hockey sense and a decent hitter. A team player who always works hard.

Brother-in-law: Pekka Rinne
