    Sharks Prospects: Kasper Halttunen Goes Bonkers In OHL Championship Series

    San Jose Sharks 2023 second-round pick Kasper Halttunen has been unreal for the London Knights during their OHL Playoffs, scoring a hat trick in their most recent game.

    Halttunen has played in 16 playoff games so far and has 12 goals. He's scoring at an unbelievable clip during the Knights' current run for the OHL championship. Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Easton Cowan and Winnipeg Jets prospect Jacob Julien have nine goals during the OHL playoffs for second on the Knights.

    The Knights obliterated the Oshawa Generals 9-1 on Saturday night, giving London a 2-0 series lead.

    Halttunen's 12 goals lead all OHL skaters in the postseason. Since deciding to play in North America, the Finnish winger has shown he has all the skills to become an elite sniper in the NHL.

    The Sharks finished 31st in goals scored this season. Fabian Zetterlund led the team with 24 goals, making him the only player to score over 20. San Jose desperately needs many things, but after last season's offensive struggles, Halttunen projects to help that area.

    Halttunen might not be with the NHL club next season, but if he is, he should become a significant powerplay contributor.
