  • 2019-11-24 at Ilves - TPS, U16 by Lassi Alanen

    Kiviharju scored a goal and added a secondary assist in TPS’ dominant 1-8 win over Ilves. Being the youngest player on the team, Kiviharju was playing on the second defensive pairing, logging ice time at even-strength and both special teams. The 13-year-old is currently leading the entire U16 league in points by a defenceman.

    It’s easy to see why Kiviharju is already so dominant at this level. He’s an effortless skater with clean stride and solid edges. Kiviharju’s puck skills are elite for a defenceman at his age, as he can dangle through opponents and hold the puck for long periods in the offensive zone. His poise with the puck is excellent as he never seems to panic or to make bad decisions with the puck. Kiviharju is very strong on the breakout and made a beautiful stretch pass resulting in a breakaway. Not being the physically strongest player on the ice, he relies a lot on his stick to break up plays in the defensive zone.

    Although there’s still a long way to go, Kiviharju’s skill set and his historically strong production at this level both scream an elite prospect.
