2021 Flames First Round Targets: Aatu Räty

The first round of the 2021 NHL Draft will take place on July 23. Following the results of the draft lottery, the Flames hold the 12th overall selection and will have a chance to add a high-end prospect to their organization.

Once considered a front-runner to be the top selection in this year’s draft, Aatu Räty has faced some challenges over his past two seasons in Finland but still looks like a safe bet to go in the first round.

Scouting report

Räty is a 6’1″, 181-pound centre who has spent his developmental years playing for Kärpät at various levels in Finnish hockey.
