Kaapo Kakko's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber ProspectsMay 15th: "The most prolific U18 goal scorer in Liiga history blends power and precision. There are no holes in his game, as heís a threat to dish it, finish it, or look for another option. Will immediately step into an NHL top six and produce tangible results."

Chris Peters - ESPNMay 6th: "An NHL-ready player who has honed his craft against pros, Kakko is good in all areas of the ice with few noticeable weaknesses."

Hannah Stuart - theScoreMay 1st: "He's strong on the puck and efficient away from it, and he uses his impressive puck skills and hockey sense to torment the opposition."

Adam Kimelman, Mike G. Morreale and Guillaume Lepage - NHL.com Apr. 10th: "Kimelman: Kakko has game-breaking offensive abilities, including high-end vision and hands, and can make plays at top speed. He could step right into a top-six role in the NHL next season.
Morreale: The left-shot forward has an excellent understanding of the game, can win 1-on-1 battles, is strong along the boards and relishes pressure situations."

Sam Conentino - SportsNetApr. 9th: "Kakko can level the playing field or jump to No. 1 if his game at the menís worlds is the same as it has been all season in the Liiga."
