Aron Kiviharju's Player Profile

Rachel Doerrie - ESPN - April 2nd: "For a small defenseman, he manages the play very well through excellent skating in a high-end hockey sense. His footwork is particularly noticeable on the puck where he escapes sticky situations, walks the line and creates space for himself."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - March 25th: "He manages play in front of him with impressive poise and comfort, directing and influencing play all the way down the ice. He effortlessly advances play under pressure inside his own zone, side-stepping forecheckers to headman pucks."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - March 13th: "With injuries consuming a large portion of his season, scouts would like another chance to corroborate what’s been seen from him as an underaged player in the past."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - March 12th: "He's notably undersized, and while he competes fine he's not overly physical. He skates well but doesn't have the elite small-guy feet that make you think he will translate seamlessly to the NHL."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - March 9th: "Kiviharju had some bumps in the road a year ago against men, but he’s a dynamic passer who can skate like the wind. Kiviharju will need to show a lot when he returns if he is to go high in the draft. I still think there’s top-pairing potential here."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - March 1st: "Kiviharju (5-9, 170), who is expected to return to the lineup later this month after sustaining a lower-body injury in October, has an excellent feel for the game and possesses a lot of strength in the tough areas of the ice."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - February 27th: "He’s a stocky and strong defender who relies on small area quickness to win pucks. Kiviharju is the kind of undersized defenceman who can launch the attack and join the rush as an extra layer, or escape his zone and lead the play up ice on his own."
