Columbus Blue Jackets Select Oiva Keskinen #194 Overall

That isn’t to say this pick was completely unexpected in the traditional way. NHL’s Central Scouting did rank Keskinen, but he was really low (#125 amongst international skaters). He played this past season with Tappara U20 (Tampere), which should be a recognizable team if you watched the team play in Finland last November.
