Kahkonen plays a butterfly style and displays solid mechanics and strong positioning in the crease. Currently playing at the U20 level in Finland, he has decent size for a goaltender and displays good agility as well. Explosive when he moves side-to-side, he is also very quick to pop back up in his stance.

A leader between the pipes, Kakhonen can also act as a team’s third defensemen with his excellent puck handling/puck moving skills. Calm and poised, not only can he handle a heavy workload, he excels. Currently the second highest ranked European goaltender in Central Scouting’s rankings, I’d be interested to see if he gets some time in the men’s league before the season is out.
