BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — As we count down to the NHL Draft on June 23rd in Chicago, our sixth News 4 Premier Prospect is Eeli Tolvanen, a Finnish winger whose offensive scoring instincts – including his heavy shot – could lead to a high selection.
Here’s the lowdown on Tolvanen:
Wing (Left shot)
5’10, 181 lbs
Sioux City Musketeers (USHL)
In one sentence:
Perhaps the most Corsi-friendly forward on the draft board, Eeli Tolvanen has overcome his limited size and athletic ability by developing a solid two-way game that features perhaps the best shot in the entire draft class.
