THE SHINNY:
The top ranked European player in the draft, Mikael Granlund was just under a point-per-game player in Finland's top league as he registered 40 points (13 goals) in 43 games with HIFK.

Granlund led Finland at the 2010 World Junior Championships as he set up six goals and finished with seven points.

NHL Central Scouting's Goran Stubb: “Saku Koivu clone. He's small, but no one's told him he's small. He has a really good, winning attitude, works very hard. He's tough, and he has very good hockey sense."

NEWS:
Granlund Draft Profile (bleacherreport.com)
(6.10.10) The NHL has not had a dominant young Finnish superstar since arguably Teemu Selanne. That may all change when Mikael Granlund becomes the first European player to be drafted when the 2010 NHL Entry Draft arrives in June.

Playing for HIFK’s junior team in the Finnish Elite League in the 2008-09 season, Granlund dominated the competition, scoring 57 points in just 35 games. After being promoted to the big league for the 2009-10 season, the 5'10" 180-pound center put up 40 points in 43 games as a rookie in the second-highest league in Europe.
