  • 2017-12-30 at Finland - Slovakia, World Juniors by Marco Bombino

    Jokiharju had an impressive game in a 5-2 win over Slovakia. He displayed notable poise and very good puck handling skills. He consistently moved the puck with a solid first pass out of the zone and processed the game at a high level. In the first period, he made a nice fake at the point to fool an opponent and create a shooting lane for himself. He’s a highly intelligent player when having the puck on his stick. One aspect of the game where he could have managed better was getting pucks through on net from the point more consistently.

    Defensively, Jokiharju used his stick well and kept solid gap control against the oncoming forwards. His smooth skating and quick first few steps allowed him to get back into his position when needed. He has never been a very physical defenseman, but he reads and anticipates the game very well.

    Jokiharju is a very smooth-skating offensive defenseman with an extraordinarily high hockey IQ and good puck-handling technique. He seems to always be a step or two ahead of his opponents and can give sharp passes through tight openings.

    While he isn’t big and his physics definitely need to develop, Jokiharju is also good in his own end with his good skating and smarts. He is positionally very sound, his gap control is good and he uses his stick effectively.

    Jokiharju sometimes holds on to the puck maybe a little too long, but he rarely loses it in bad places.
