Konsta Helenius's Player Profile

Rachel Doerrie - ESPN - April 2nd: "Helenius fits perfectly with the hardworking identity the Isles have built and will be a difference-maker through his ability to create in the offensive zone. He never cheats for effort, and if he can improve his skating, there is legitimate upside to be a possession-driving center in a top-six role."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - March 25th: "He seems to create constantly. Heís a good though not great skater. He anticipates the play at a very high level off the puck (the puck just seems to find him again and again inside the offensive zone)."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - March 13th: "Plays a pro style game and is often on the right side of the puck when he doesnít have it, but is also competitive and skilled enough to make things happen when he does have it."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - March 12th: "Is he the most dynamic 5-11 center I've ever seen? No, but there are a lot of positives in his game and he could be a strong top-two-line center in the NHL."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - March 9th: "Helenius isnít big, but heís strong, and he hasnít looked out of place playing against men this year. The 5-foot-11 winger battles hard for possession, and while he only had a pair of points at the World Juniors, he displayed his tremendous hockey IQ and small-area game."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - March 7th: "He continues to be a work horse and very deceptive playmaker as that determination and energy seems to take over on a consistent basis. Heís very tenacious when hunting down loose pucks, battling along the boards and his combination with his patience to strike quickly makes him very dangerous when the play is down low."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - March 1st: "Helenius (5-11, 180) is skilled and quick with a high compete level. The right-handed shot had two points (one goal, one assist) in seven games playing a middle-six role for fourth-place Finland at the 2024 WJC."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - February 27th: "Helenius plays the game fast and he's a threat off the rush. The kind of forward who leads zone entries off the power play breakout. Heís a play driver whoís sees the ice and makes plays. "
