Miro Heiskanen, Defence

Shoots: L

Height: 6-1

Weight: 174

Born: 1999-07-18

Hometown:  Espoo, FIN

Drafted: 2017 Draft eligible

Observations:

March 2017 – Heiskanen is elite skating defenceman with plenty of speed and mobility. Already playing against men in Liiga he is an excellent puck mover and transition defenceman. His offensive ceiling is not too high and he may never quarterback the powerplay but he has good hockey sense, is ahead of his years in his defensive play. Heiskanen needs to add some bulk to his slight frame to be effective in North America but he is already proven at the pro level and may have a shorter path to the NHL than some other draft eligible defencemen.   Peter Harling

Fantasy Outlook: B

Elite skating two way defenceman with top four upside.
