Samu Tuomaala's Player Profile

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - July 12th: "Tuomaala (5-10, 174) is an energy-type forward with good speed, quickness and puck control."

Eetu Siltanen - Dobber Prospects - July 7th: "He’s a shoot-first player and has a really quick and dangerous wrist shot. He’s a fast skater with good acceleration and possesses solid, if unspectacular, puck skills."

Scott Wheeler - The Atheletic - June 22nd: "When he plays an up-tempo, energizing game, he’s very effective. His skill makes him a lot of fun to watch when he’s surrounded by talented players, too (as was the case at U18s)."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - May 24th: "A quick sniper who plays a lot heavier than his measurements may indicate, Tuomaala teamed up with fellow winger Ville Koivunento to lead Karpat U20 to within one game of the SM-Sarja championship."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - May 12th: "A short, scoreless audition in the Liiga notwithstanding, the smallish, energetic forward is a threat from the blue line in."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Apr. 23rd: "Tuomaala is an energy-type forward with good speed, quickness and puck control. The 18-year-old has good offensive skills, including a hard, accurate shot."

Eetu Siltanen - Dobber Prospects - Mar. 8: "He’s an excellent skater and snipes the puck hard and accurate .. His defensive effort has been a bit worrying and he looks a bit selfish – like every sniper – from time to time but as he has really high upside, he shouldn’t drop too far."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 22nd: "He is a volume shooter who doesn’t always take advantage of the tools that he possesses to their fullest extent. Tuomaala has the ability to puck handle by defenders and use his speed and agility to dash through traffic but he often seems as if he wants to hide that part of his game."
