#24: Eetu Tuulola

Position: Right Wing

Age: 20

Team: HPK (Liiga)

Drafted in 2016, 6th Round, Pick 156

Last Year Ranking: Honourable Mention

Voting Points: 328

Eetu Tuulola finds himself at #24 in the Top 25 Under 25 for this season. Eetu didn’t crack the list last season so this would be our first look at him since he was drafted back in 2016.

Tuulola is a RW prospect that will get the “size brigade” all amped up. The Finish product stands 6’2” and a hefty 225 lbs. He’s currently unsigned, but at 20 years old there is plenty of time for this ship to sink or sail. Eetu spent last season in Finland with HPK in Liiga. There he played in 51 games and totaled 26 points (16G 10A). During the WJC he played in 3 games and didn’t collect a point, but in 11 games in the International Jr’s he had 3 points. His 26 points with HPK were the most he tallied since the 2016-17 season with the Everett Silvertips (WHL) where he played in 62 games and grabbed 31 points (18G 13A). Where he has been consistent is in using his large frame. His PIM have been equal to or greater than his point totals in every season he’s played hockey.....at every level.
