Samu Tuomaala's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - : "A play-driving winger with great speed and an abundance of confidence. Has kept his head above water defensively in the top tier."

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

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Nov. 27th: "Smallish (5-foot-10) right shot winger who is crafty. Can play the in-tight game and get rid of the puck in a hurry."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Oct. 8th: "Tuomaala has great speed and skill. The quickness helps make up for the 5-foot-10 frame. He’s able to take the puck in his own end and create a lot of controlled zone exits and entries. He has a great shot from range and is able to beat goalies clean."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 14th: "He’s capable of registering 7-10 shot attempts a night so the fact that he’s doing that out of the gate this season bodes well. Tuomaala’s shot is his biggest weapon, not only from a catch-and-release stance or in transition but also from his one-timer, which gives him serious power play upside:"

Jokke Nevalainen - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 12th: "Tuomaala is an exciting offensive winger who owns a deadly shot. His release is among the best in this draft class, and he can fire powerful and accurate shots that can beat goalies from distance. Tuomaala is also a pretty good playmaker, although that part of his game still needs some work."
