Niemela signed a three-year entry-level deal with Toronto on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Niemela is one of the top defensemen in Toronto's system, offering a strong two-way game with the potential to contribute offensively. The 20-year-old posted 10 goals and 22 assists in 48 games with Karpat in the Finnish Liiga this season. Niemela will likely start 2022-23 in the AHL but will have a real shot to make the NHL club with a strong training camp.
