Highlights
3-time SM-liiga Champion 3

Haataja is a speedy winger with good offensive instincts. Knows where to go to score goals and has a great shot to go along with it. Plays with intensity and works hard, but could improve his defensive game. Is also somewhat lacking in size.
- Ulf Andersson, EP (2012)
