Eetu Makiniemi profile and history

The Hurricanes went off the board a bit when they selected Makiniemi in the fourth round. In a deep goalie class, he was not near the top of the list. The 6 foot 2 inch Makiniemi has a good combination of size, quickness and athletic ability and has as good of a chance as any to progress to the NHL level somewhere down the road.
