Fantasy Hockey Focus: The Finns!

This week, we continue our tour around European professional hockey to see how prospects are doing. The flavour of the week is Finland, where Tappara has just won their third title in a row and fifth out of the last eight awarded. Safe to say we are watching a dynasty in Finnish hockey. 

Just because the team is dominant, doesn’t mean they have prospects we are interested in following. This is the case here as the only semi-interesting prospect on Tappara is Oiva Keskinen, who was a seventh-round pick by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2023. 27 points in 54 games wasn’t bad for the 20-year-old, we won’t dive deep into his projection, but if you’re in a deep enough league, he might be interesting. Let’s look at some more prominent prospects!
