Anttoni Honka's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Dec. 20th: "Loves to jump up into the play and create offence. Owns exciting lateral movement and the creativity to thrive on a power play. Wonít ever be strong enough to out-muscle oncoming forwards so heíll need to use his stick and his positioning at a higher level."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - Nov. 7th: "Is playing top-six minutes as an 18-year-old in the highest Finnish league. While his team has struggled, heís still performing to expected levels."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 6th: "The size isnít my main concern. Heís small for a high-end defenceman in todayís game but it does not hold players back as much as it once did. Iím more concerned with the fact that heís on the older side of this draft class and he hasnít taken the strides I expected him to take this season."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Nov. 5th: "The younger brother of Dallas Starsí blueliner, Julius, Antonni plays a similar style game. Loves to jump up into the play and create offense. Owns exciting lateral movement and the creativity to thrive on a power play."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - Nov. 5th: "Honka plays cool as a cucumber under the most harrowing of conditions, and his penchant for beating pressure with his wheels makes him perfect for todayís NHL."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - Oct. 2nd: "Right shot defenceman uses feet and a lightning quick release with the wrist shot to get pucks through. Will carry it fearlessly, with good top-end speed and mobility."

Steve Kournianos (@TheDraftAnalyst) - Sporting News - June 29th: "Undersized playmaker from the back end who has speed, agility and hawk-like vision. Honka is one of the 2019 draft's top offensive threats among defensemen. He is very quick and nimble, using rapid directional changes, dekes and stutter steps to cleanly take the puck through a clogged neutral zone."
