Aleksi Heponiemi Signs ELC With Florida Panthers

Listed at 5’11” and 154 lbs, Heponiemi has room to grow into his frame, but he has yet to let that impede on his ability to generate offense in all situations. Heponiemi’s skating, vision, and puck-moving ability have all been put on display no matter what league or competition he has played in and he will compete for a spot on the Panthers’ NHL squad come training camp.

Since being drafted in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, the Finnish forward spent one season in the WHL (2017-2018) and one season in Liiga (2018-2019), Finland’s top-tier professional league.
