- 2018-09-27 at Central Illinois Flying Aces - Sioux Falls Stampede, USHL by Lassi Alanen
Krannila had a very good game in Sioux Falls’ 5-6 overtime win. He was centering his team’s second line and second power play unit. Krannila scored the opening goal of the game and had two assists, including a primary assist on the game-winning overtime goal. He also led his team with six shots on goal. Krannila’s skating looked pretty good and particularly his top speed without the puck was really noticeable. Krannila showcased great hockey sense and playmaking by creating multiple high danger shoring chances for his linemates. He was making very smart and creative passes on the power play.
At 5’10” and 161 pounds, Krannila was one of the smallest players on the ice, but that didn’t seem to have much of an impact on his game. He showed good defensive awareness by covering a couple of times for his defenceman and was active with his stick in his own end. I would like him to be a little bit more proactive, but overall I really liked his performance. Krannila is committed to play for St. Cloud State University next season and is an interesting name to keep in mind for the 2019 NHL draft.
