Name: Aleksi Saarela
Current Team: Ässät (Liiga)
Hockeys Future Profile: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospects/aleksi-saarela/
http://www.eliteprospects.com/player....jCwUF2Ff.dpufToday he’s a vested player for Assat in Finland’s top pro league. Although the knocks against him for being injury prone persist, this past season he missed just five league games, and took part in over a dozen international tilts. Saarela long ago left behind the kind of dangling that made him prodigy material. In its place, he has assumed a simplified, more pro-style game without giving up any bit of his prodigious skill-set. He’s an agile skater with great acceleration and excellent top speed; a killer puck-handler with incredible vision who processes the game with a world-class hockey IQ; he has a quick release, his shot is deadly-accurate whether shooting in-stride or off the one-timer; and he is as effective a playmaker as he is a finisher.
Current StatisticsA dangerous offensive winger that creates energy through scoring chances. Possesses good hockey sense as well as good hands and stick handling ability. A smooth and speedy skater who has a lot of jump in his step. Not very large in stature; however, his diminutive size doesn't deter his scoring prowess, and that is what he will have to rely upon to be successful.
