Kaapo Kakko's Player Profile

Ben Kerr - Last Word on Hockey - July 19th: "Kakko is a highly skilled winger who can create in a variety of ways. He has the soft hands to stickhandle in a phone booth and can protect the puck and extend plays. His wrist shot is extremely powerful and features a very quick release."

Steve Kournianos (@TheDraftAnalyst) - Sporting News - June 29th: "A puck-controlling fiend with exception hands, agility and vision, Kakko is a power winger who is impossible to knock off the puck. His close-quarter quickness and straight-line speed seem to always catch opponents off guard."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - June 24th: "Right wing Kaapo Kakko (6-1, 187) of TPS in Finland is one of the elite international prospects. He took seven shots on goal and averaged 14:12 in ice time in six games for TPS in Liiga, and had 55 points (25 goals, 30 assists) in 38 games for TPS U-20 in Liiga's junior division."
