Lauri Pajuniemi

Position: forward
Shoots:
Born: 1999-09-12 / Tampere
Height 182 cm
Weight 83 kg
Team: TPS

Drafted by New York Rangers in 2018 #132


  • 2017-01-27 at HIFK - TPS, U20 by Marco Bombino

    Pajuniemi played on the second line and first power play unit for TPS U20. He likes to have the puck on his stick and has good puck control in tight spaces. He can hang onto the puck and create offense. He moved the puck well in the second period, making simple, short passes that were tape-to-tape. He played at a fairly high pace and showed an ability to handle the puck at varying speeds. Had good edge work, agility and quickness.

    The winger could add more consistency and make quicker decisions certain times. He made one play in the first period in which he lost puck control dangerously in the defensive zone. He read the game fairly well defensively, but it’s another area for some improvement. Despite all of this, with his crafty offensive abilities he’s an interesting player for this year’s NHL Draft.
