Who Impressed from the 2019 Hlinka Gretzky Cup

Hirvonen is a smart and talented forward with an impressive acceleration, decent top speed, a smooth stride and slick edges that help him move very fluidly around the ice. His quick feet and great edge work help him gain speed and restart the attack quickly in transitions. He carries the puck up the ice well, but often prefers to open the play in the neutral zone. He has a great quickness, which allows him to be constantly buzzing in the offensive end. He has shifty hands that help him retain possession of the puck through traffic and allows him to deke around defenders on the rush. He is smart and he understands the game at high speed. He constantly tries to get into open space to make himself available for a pass. He has a high offensive awareness and his decision making with the puck is excellent. He’s very creative in possession of the puck. He has a high-end vision and he finds partners with accurate passes. He also possesses a slick release, a dangerous wrist shot and a surprisingly powerful one-timer that makes him a dual threat in the offensive zone. He isn’t afraid of physical battles and goes to the crease when needed, but he clearly lacks both lower and upper-body strength to be overly effective. He backchecks with intensity and provides support to his defender down low. Although he can be quick to leave his own zone once his team recovers the puck, he stays very involved in his own zone.
