Born: 2003-03-28 / Jyväskylä
Height 177 cm
Weight 70 kg
Team: JYP
  • 2019-03-24 at JYP - Ilves, U16 by Lassi Alanen

    Valjakka scored a goal and added two assists in JYP’s dominant 10-1 win over Ilves in the opening game of the U16 playoffs. He was playing on JYP’s top defensive pairing and second power play unit.

    Valjakka is a smooth-skating blueliner with good all-around puck skills. He has good mobility combined with decent acceleration, which he used to create zone exits. Valjakka has a powerful shot for a player his size and he did use it a lot on the power play, even though a pass would have been clearly a better option. Valjakka made a few errors in his own end, but overall his defensive game was solid. Despite his small stature, Valjakka likes to play with an edge and is not afraid of physical altercations.
