Ville Rasanen profile and history

Rasanen is a 6 feet 2 inch and 168-pound defenseman out of Finland. Like many final round draft choices, profiles and other detailed scouting information on Rasanen is sparse. In the article on CarolinaHurricanes.com, he was described as “He’s a great, tremendous skater. Explosive.” Being a tremendous skater is obviously a great starting point, after leaning offense in the early rounds, Rasanen adds another defenseman to the mix.
