Jesse Puljajarvi's Player Profile

Rory Boylen of Sportsnet - April 9, 2016 - "Puljujarvi, a 6-foot-3, 198-pound right winger, has 13 goals and 28 points in 50 games for Karpat in the same Finnish league. He led all players in scoring at the World Junior Championship with 17 points in seven games for the gold-medal winning Finns. For comparison’s sake, Aleksander Barkov scored 48 points in 53 Finnish League games in his draft year. He was picked second overall in 2013."

Damien Cox of Sportsnet - January 13, 2016 - "MVP at the world juniors, and better than Laine in the eyes of some. It’s going to come down to the preferences of a specific team."

of Elite Prospects - 2016 - "Puljujärvi is a big winger who combines size, skating and skill. A strong skater who can blast past the opposition in full speed. Able to use his size, reach and stickhandling skills to retain the puck in speed. A smart player at both ends of the ice, both on and off the puck. Great work ethic and positive attitude. More of a playmaker than a scorer and could improve his shooting skills. Doesn't shy away from physical play, but could use his size more to his benefit."

Mike Morreale of NHL.com December 24, 2015 - "Puljujarvi (6-3, 203) is an all-around threat each time he's on the ice. A powerful skater with good speed and balance, Puljujarvi has five goals, 12 points and a plus-4 rating in 31 games with Karpat in Liiga. Puljujarvi, who averages 14:30 of ice time per game, has outstanding hockey sense, is strong in 1-on-1 situations and will take advantage of his long reach. He should form a dynamic combination with Laine for Finland."

Future Considerations - November 2015 - "Puljujarvi is a big, power winger who is hard to handle for opposing defenses and has a heavy, cannon of a shot that he likes to use often. Skates really well with a strong top end speed and excellent quickness. Blessed with a massive frame, there is lots he can do with his long reach and enviable strength that are just dominant at this level. Plays in traffic, goes to the net and has an eye towards his own ends as well as being a top end offensive guy. Looks like a future NHL goalscorer"
