Kasper Simontaival's Player Profile

Will Scouch - Scouching.ca - Nov. 19th: "He pushes possession, gets dangerous looks constantly, skates well, and for an offensive winger, he could potentially be a steal. He should be scoring a lot more than he is, and I think those who overlook him will be sorely mistaken down the line. "

Larry Fisher - The Hockey Writers - Nov. 19th: "Simontaival is a smaller forward and more of a playmaker. He reminds me of Florida prospect Aleksi Heponiemi, who was a second-rounder in 2017 but potentially cracks the first round in a redraft of that year. Simontaival is a first-rounder for me right now, but size concerns could scare some teams off on draft day."

Jokke Nevalainen -Dobber Prospects - Nov. 4th: "Hes a great skater, and despite his small frame, hes great at protecting the puck. He owns high-end hands which allow him to be an excellent playmaker from the wing but he also owns a very dangerous wrist shot."

Tony Ferrari -Wings Nation - Nov. 4th: "Fast winger who has great touch. Hes a playmaker who is always thinking offense which sometimes leaves him behind defensively."

Scott Wheeler -The Athletic - Nov. 4th: "But despite being on the smaller end, Simontaival does an excellent job using his body to edge in on defenders and protect the puck:"

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "A splendid playmaker who has the speed and soft touch needed to drive offense from the wing. Tremendous vision and the patience to wait for lanes to open up."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Aug. 19th: "This kid is slick. He just flat out makes plays. An exciting, prolific blend of speed, creativity, puck skill and passing, with a lethal release that he could stand to use more."
