Aleksi Heponiemi
20-Year-Old Left WingLW
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Heponiemi will make the transition to North American ice after posting 16 goals and 46 points in 50 games for Karpat in Finland last season. Florida's second-round selection in the 2017 draft will likely need some time to adjust to the North American ice, and he'll need to bulk up as well considering he's listed at just 5-foot-10 and 147 pounds. His production in Finland is promising, but the 20-year-old forward will likely require at least one year in the AHL before he's ready to make an impact at the top level. Read Past Outlooks

May 15, 2019
Heponiemi inked a three-year, entry-level contract with Florida on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Heponiemi opted to forgo his final season of junior eligibility and instead play in Finland last year for Karpat. The youngster racked up 46 points in 50 games before adding another three goals in the playoffs. The winger will head back to North America and will likely start the year in the minors with AHL Springfield, though a call-up or two during the season certainly isn't out of the question.
