Mikko Kokkonen's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber ProspectsFeb. 6th: "Logs heavy minutes in all situations and produces a calm and measured approach ... Hes been superb in the Liiga early on this season. A deft two-way player who likely projects as a complementary offensive piece at the next level."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Dec. 20th: "Strong outlets, good compete level and defensive positioning. Hes adjusted well to the increased workload in the Liiga this season. A deft two-way player who likely projects as a defense-first player at the next level."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 6th: "Kokkonen moves effortlessly in all four directions, closes gaps quickly, rarely gets exposed and is sneaky-strong in puck battles. He looks exactly like what youd want a modern NHL defenceman to look like."

Steve Kournianos (@TheDraftAnalyst) - Sporting News - June 29th: "One of the top junior-age defenders in Finland, Kokkonen is a poised, mobile playmaker with a high IQ who usually is summoned to take care of the tougher tasks. His skating ability allows him to carry the puck through or around traffic, but he'll only do it if the situation presents itself."
