    Tieksola is getting better everytime I see him. He was in my opinion the best forward in Kärpät’s 6-2 win. He gave two fantastic primary passes during the game, but unfortunately he wasn’t able to score, even though two of his quick wrist shots hit the post. The forward also had a breakaway attempt, but he failed with his effort. Overall, he recorded seven shots in the game.

    Tieksola is really a smart player making constantly right decisions. He is clearly a playmaking winger giving precise and crafty passes tape to tape. His poise in tight space is also really good and he was able to keep the puck with his skill. He was also the player who ran the power play of Kärpät. The biggest concern with Tieksola is obviously his size. He is bit short and really lightweight currently. His defensive game might also require some fine-tuning in pro game, but that is something to be expected.

    Tieksola is not a player with greatest top speed, but his skating is definitely not an issue, especially since his agility and acceleration are impressive. My overall impression of him was that alongside with his above average skills, he is also very dynamic forward with good work ethic and he does impressive job finding open space. With his smarts and skill, I’m certain some team will draft him in the next NHL Draft.

    Tieksola has been efficient this season recording almost one point per game in Finnish U20 league. He had one more point in this game giving a primary assist for the first goal of Kärpät

    To me, Tieksola looked like a player who for the most part is pretty good at everything but not particularly good at anything. Overall his skating, offensive abilties, positioning, vision, work ethic and defensive play were in a nice level for this level of play and that helps him being effective. He still have smallish stature and improving in physical side should help him a lot in a future.

    However his stickhandling stood out from his other qualities. He wanted to have the puck, made some pretty good moves with it and he carried the puck with poise. He occasionally held the puck for too long time and he went to the perimeter easily, but his hands could be a dangerous asset, especially when he matures and gains more muscle and confidence.
