  • 2017-11-12 at HIFK - JYP, U16 by Marco Bombino

    Lappi was the cornerstone in net for JYP U16 as they beat HIFK 3-2. He made 35 saves in the game – 15 in the third period – and performed really well in key moments. Lappi may not have the prototypical size of today’s goalie, however, he is technically sound and has good skills. He has a quick, consistent glove. His lateral quickness and overall skating ability were at an advanced level, allowing to make some tough saves. He showed athleticism. His play reading and positioning were also solid.

    Lappi already played for the U16 national team against Germany in October and should have a good chance to be selected for the upcoming tournaments.
