Kakko picked second overall in the NHL draft
June 21, 2019
The Finnish wonderkid Kaapo Kakko from TPS got picked as second overall in the NHL draft by the New York Rangers.
When the New Jersey Devils took American Jack Hughes with the first pick this Friday at Rogers Arena, Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton wasted no time announcing that the Blueshirts were taking Finnish forward Kaapo Kakko, 18, who starred in his country’s top professional league Liiga last season. He led Finland to the gold medal in the World Junior Championships in January and the World Championships in Slovakia last month.
CSM has been the exclusive media rights advisor of Liiga since 2017 & would like to congratulate Kaapo for an outstanding season.
