A big bodied butterfly goalie, Tuohimaa is a smart, technically sound netminder. He is not the most athletically gifted player, but makes the most of his ability and has a strong work ethic.
Injuries opened the door for Tuohima to get a number of games in as the starter for Jokerit in the Finnish Elite League and he didn't look out of place at all. He doesn't boast elite level talent, however he's a smart netminder who has been progressing nicely and could be an NHL backup in 2-3 years. He defintiely has what it takes to be a starter in Europe for as long as he chooses to keep playing.
