Aatu Raty's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - July 12th: "Raty does have all the tools to be a high-end playmaker, with great hands and puck management skills, and his size helps him win battles along the boards."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - July 12th: "Raty (6-2, 185) is a good skater with speed, balance and excellent puck control."

Josh Bell of FC Hockey - July 8th: "Raty is a boom-or-bust prospect. His vision, playmaking, and maneuverability with the puck stand out as strengths, but his consistency and hockey sense gives pause."

Sebastian Death of FC Hockey - July 8th: "A very hard competitor who is good at everything but lacks game-breaking talent."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - July 7th: "When at his best, Räty has the chance to be the best center from this draft class with his dual threat ability as a shooter and passer along with a two-way game that should translate to the NHL level. The issue is that he has often not been at his best over the last year which leaves him as a projectable transitional third line center."

Scott Wheeler - The Atheletic - June 22nd: "When he’s engaged and active, he can be an effective forechecker who wins back possession and then makes plays off of the wall to the interior."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - May 24th: "Nevertheless, his size, shot, and two-way play improved from last year to help Raty stay in the conversation for the top 10."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - May 12th: "How much will teams weigh his 2021 season in the Liiga (just six points in 35 games) versus multiple strong international events from years past?"

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Apr. 23rd: "Raty is a good skater with speed, balance and excellent puck control."

Eetu Siltanen - Dobber Prospects - Mar. 8: "Räty is a smart player with a good offensive toolset. He skates well, has good puck skills, and can shoot the puck, so he doesn’t particularly lack any skill but obviously needs to improve everything, like every prospect in the draft."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 22nd: "His wrist shot remains a real weapon and his ability to find soft spots has been quite good since the turn of the calendar to 2021. His two-way play is solid and he very well could wind up being the best center in the class."
