- 2018-04-01 at HIFK - Blues, U18 by Marco Bombino
Hirvonen played an impressive two-way game and scored two goals, leading HIFK U18 to a 5-1 win over Blues. His first goal was a particularly nice one. He found a soft spot in the offensive zone, received a cross-ice pass in a dangerous scoring position and finished off the play.
He’s a very good skater who is always moving and buzzing all over the ice. He’s quick to pucks and a tireless worker in all three zones. He has a quick wrist shot and showed a nose for the net. His offensive skill set is fairly good, but I was more impressed by his versatility and solid play away from the puck, especially on the penalty kill.

Hirvonen saw limited ice time as the fourth line center. He was also playing in penalty kill.
His qualities fits well for the more checking role. He is speedy forward with powerful acceleration and good agility. He went sometimes out of position but he showcased high work ethic and relatively solid checking game.
Hirvonen wasn’t able to generate a lot of offense in this game. He seemed to have decent hands but more responsibility would have been required for proper assessment. He is also pretty lightweight at this point and that causes some problems, but that is an area that should improve when he matures.
