- 2017-07-24 at Finland - Czech Republic, U20 by Marco Bombino
An undrafted prospect who played on the first line with Otto Koivula and Janne Kuokkanen. Turkulainen always seems to play a highly energetic game and today was no exception. An explosive skater with quick bursts of acceleration that allow him to move in a hurry. He was constantly in movement and worked hard in all three zones. Showcased some offensive instincts and set-up skills. A very likeable player because of the competitiveness that he brings in each shift.
Turkulainen attended Toronto Maple Leafs’ development camp and will continue to garner NHL interest in the upcoming Liiga season.
- 2017-01-24 at KalPa - JYP, Liiga by Asko Huuki
Turkulainen is a pure skill player and he needs to play in an offensive role. In a game against KalPa he played an entertaining game. He made some great dekes, made precise passes and showed great work ethic. His hockey IQ also seemed to be really good and forward was able to create scoring opportunities often.
His size is obviously his biggest weakness and Turkulainen got easily knocked off balance. However he tried to compensate his weakness by going into the dirty areas. His top speed isn’t especially great either but his acceleration is great and he is agile on skates.
