Notes: 2012-13: Selected by Pittsburgh in 1st round (22nd overall) of the NHL Draft...2013-14: Made NHL debut; Bronze Medallist with Finland at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Finnish defenseman playing for the London Knights of the OHL is the eighth- ranked North American skater by NHL scouting and is the fourth blueliner on that list...Although he is considered to be more of a stay-at-home defenseman, Maatta led all OHL rookie defensemen in 2011-12 with 32 points (5G, 27A) in 58 games...Also turned in a super postseason for the Knights in 2012, recording six goals and 23 points over 19 games for the OHL champions...Smooth skater with a strong shot that scouts complain he doesn's use enough.
