Highlights
1-time U20 WJC Gold Medal 1
1-time World Championship Silver Medal 1

An exceptionally talented playmaker and always a consistent threat on the ice; Rantanen is a combination of elite-level hockey sense, silky smooth hands, and nimble skating. Needs to improve his shot and physical play, as he doesn't take advantage of his size in many situations. All-in-all, an intelligent, big-bodied forward that oozes skill. (Curtis Joe, EP 2014)
