These goals make it look like he’s having far too easy of a time in that league. Does destroying the competition with ease really help development? Then again, I haven’t seen anything about how he’s playing in his own end.

Don't worry about that part. If you're an undersized Euro who has some hint of offensive upside, we love you.

It’ll be interesting seeing him play in the NHL in 2023.

I’m starting to think Heiskanen might be at least an average player.

It's very much man-amongst-boys for him right now. Despite, y'know, being a boy amongst men:

[urlnp='s advanced stats.[/urlnp] Heiskanen starts in the defensive zone a lot, the team doesn't give up many shots when he's on the ice. Offensively the team generates tons of offense when he's on the ice.
Spoiler:

Another goal for Heiskanen. 7 goals in 11 games in the Liiga

I don't really need to see every goal this kid scores in the EuroSpares league. I'm too busy watching Pateryn and Oleksiak waste ice time. Call me when Heiskanen gets his green card.

Just 4 assists in 15 games? Sounds like another John Erskine. Hard pass.

A couple of scouts who just came back from Europe spoke very highly of Dallas’s Miro Heiskanen, the third-overall pick in last year’s draft. One source (who asked to remain nameless because he does draft projection for an NHL team) said Heiskanen has a chance to become just the second 18-year-old in 30 years to average a point per game in Finland’s top league. He has eight goals and 12 points in 15 games. The other? Carolina’s Sebastian Aho.

Heiskanen scored another goal today, it tied the game at 3 with under 5 minutes to go in the 3rd.
