2022 NHL DRAFT: Finnish Players to Watch

Jani Nyman is a power forward who is at his best when attacking on offense. With a natural ability as a goal-scorer, he is also a very good set up man, making him versatile with the puck on his stick and dangerous. If he wants to keep producing, though, he needs to rely on his heavy shot, which is accurate and quick even from a standstill. He can look a bit awkward at times while skating as he is clearly still growing into his body and working on moving his feet with that height. That coordination will simply come with time. Still, he moves decently as it stands given his current size. He applies pressure well and is especially active on the forecheck, forcing defenders to make quick plays and turn the puck over. He has a great effort level and plays a very solid two-way game even at the top Finnish league level. When the puck is on his stick, he protects it well and has impressive stickhandling for someone his size. On offense is where he thrives. He’s not shy to challenge one-on-one or put pucks on net from all over the offensive zone. It’s his defensive game where he needs the most work. Getting caught watching the puck and struggling to make simple exit plays are a few things that he must improve on as he gets more comfortable playing at a higher pace. Correcting these issues in his game is tough at the Liiga level, but he needs to prove he is capable of playing at the highest level of hockey in Finland if he’s to continue developing to an NHL career. If he develops and hits his ceiling, he can turn into an effective power forward who thrives in the condensed areas of the offensive zone. He is a bit risky, but Nyman can pay off big time if everything goes right for him over the next few seasons.
