Jarventie is a skilled forward with high level offensive instincts. He’s not the biggest guy on the ice, but his nimble feet and soft hands make him a threat to score every time he enters the offensive zone. He impressed offensively in the game against TUTO, showcasing both his playmaking and scoring abilities. His wrist shot is both powerful and accurate, and he gets it off quickly and even while standing still. I was also impressed with the way he handled the puck in the defensive zone, where he often helped his team get the puck out of their own zone through smart, short passes to his open teammates, who could then take the puck out themselves or go for a breakout pass. Jarventie is especially useful on the power play, where he can run sequences from the right dot. His shot makes him a constant threat, and that opens up passing lanes that he is also good at recognizing. His defensive game is less surprisingly something that he will need to work on even though that wasn’t something he had to do a whole lot during this game. He does need to be smart with his decision-making against better competition, since he won’t be able to beat the opponents as easily as in this particular game. Jarventie is a smart player, however, so I wouldn’t say I’m particularly concerned with that aspect at this time. He is one of the most intriguing offensive prospects from Finland in this draft class, and I have him slotted in at the end of the third round as of this moment. If he can show that he’ll be able to play to his strengths against Mestis competition, I’m sure Jarventie can boost his draft stock and even rise as high as the second round.
