- 2018-02-24 at Muskegon Lumberjacks - Sioux City Musketeers, USHL by Asko Huuki
The 20-year-old forward has been one of the most productive players in the league collecting 30 points in 22 games. He got two assists against Sioux City Musketeers. The latter assist was especially impressive as his assist created a breakaway in a short-handed play.
Hakkarainen was extremely solid in this game. He was a constant threat playing really quick and effective passing game creating many scoring opportunities and having some himself. He read the play extremely well being in the right place at the right time. The forward is a good stick-handler but he doesn’t make unnecessary dangles. His speed, agility and acceleration were impressive for this level of play. Even though he didn’t show much grit, he seemed physically more mature than most of the other players. He took care of his defensive responsibilities well too.
Hakkarainen is one of the oldest players in his team and at the moment he looks dominant in a junior league. He will play in Providence College next season and it will be interesting to see how he plays against the better competition.
