While Finland's gold medal-winning squad at the 2014 World Junior Championship featured a couple of noteworthy performers, the win was very a much a team win in that contributors could be found all across the roster.
One such contributor was forward Henri Ikonen. The Tampa Bay Lightning prospect spent most of the tournament playing as an extra forward, but he still managed to contribute both on offense and with solid, two-way play. For the tournament, Ikonen finished with one goal and two assists in seven games in a limited role.
Ikonen plays for the Kingston Frontenacs of the OHL. Now in his second season with that club, the Savonlinna, Finland native is following up a solid rookie season with an even better sophomore campaign. In 33 games, Ikonen has scored 13 goals and added 32 assists for 45 points to go along with a +10 rating.
Ikonen spoke with Hockey's Future following his team's win over Canada in the semi-finals, a conversation captured in this HF video.
