- 2018-11-04 at KalPa - Lukko, U18 by Juha Koljonen
Eikka Kokkonen recorded 28 saves and one conceded goal, when KalPa beat Lukko in the U18 circuit 6-1. His best saves came in the second period, when Lukko had a couple of odd-man rushes. Despite the 28 saves, his night was fairly easy.
Kokkonen is very quick and athletid goalie with fluid movements. Especially his feet are very quick. Kokkonen is technically skilled, he positions himself well and he can keep his playing at a high level from game to game with very few bad games. Kokkonen isn’t the biggest of goalies and he plays a lot on the ice so there is often room in the high corners.
He has debuted already in the junior national team and has been one of the best goalies in the U18 circuit this season. After 13 games his saving percentage, 93.17, is the best from goalies with more than a handful of games. His numbers were impressive also last season in both U16 and U18 leagues.
