The Oshawa Generals Finnish import will be representing the team at the 2020 Kubota CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.
Forward Oliver Suni will be in Hamilton on Jan. 16 for the game.
The Kempele, Finland native was the Generals first round selection in the 2019 Import Draft this past June.
He was a member of the Karpat Oulu B in Finland during the 2018-19 season where he tallied 19 goals and 17 assists for 36 points in 23 games played.
The 6’2, 195-pound, righthanded forward, has previously represented his country at the U17 World Hockey Challenge, recording three assists in six games at the tournament.
In August, he played for Finland in the Hlinka Gretzky Cup tallying three assists in three games.
This season with the Generals, Suni is leading the team in rookie scoring with eight goals and fifteen assists in 27 games played, and currently sits third in league rookie scoring.
“It’s a great testament to Oliver and his play thus far this season to be named to this game,” said general manager Roger Hunt. “It’s an honour to be able to play in a prestigious showcase game such as the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game and we’re proud as an organization to have Oliver representing the Generals in this game.”
