Emil Oksanen

Darren Walker

A smooth-skating winger with good hands and a deadly finish…his skating is very agile…able to explode in a couple of quick strides…silky smooth hands and solid puckhandling skills…poised with the puck, and finds a way to get to the net…great awareness of the game…vision is very impressive and he makes well-timed, accurate passes…knows where he wants to move the puck before he touches it…possesses good power and excellent release on his wrist shots…understands the game well and is always aware of where his linemates are and will be…plays a responsible defensive game, aware of his duties within all three zones…uses his stick very well for checking players and anticipates their next move…a player who combines a good shot with good skating ability…projects to be a top-six scorer at the NHL level.
