Drafted 83rd overall in the 2019 NHL Draft by the Carolina Hurricanes, Anttoni Honka was coming off a decent year. He had shown that he was too good for the U-20 league by putting up 9 points in 6 games, including 2 goals. But hadn’t found his footing in the Liiga quite yet, only having 4 points in 16 games with a staggering -7. He then found himself heading to KeuPa HT, a team in the Mestis league, adding 7 points in 11 games in the regular season. Honka played in the playoffs for KeuPa, putting up 11 points in 17 games. He’s one of the many 2019 draft picks that don’t have their ELC but he has taken a large step up towards getting that contract.
