Oilers at 182: Frans Tuohimaa

Hockey’s Future: Another large goalie who uses his size well, Tuohimaa joined Jokerit’s A junior team this season after playing his youth hockey and two Junior A seasons with cross-town rival HIFK. How much of his success can be attributed to playing for third-place Jokerit is debatable, but Tuohimaa was one of the busiest goalies in A juniors, playing in 37 regular season games and seven playoff contests and had the top save percentage in the league, stopping over 93 percent of the shots he faced. While Tuohimaa has not been as highly regarded as some of the other goalies in his age group, and has played for Finland’s junior program in some international matches but never at the U-18 or U-20 world championships, his play this season did attract the attention of the scouting community.

Not ranked by CSS and undrafted in 2010, he was rated the sixth among European goalies by CSS in their final 2011 rankings.
