2023 NHL Draft Prospect Profile: Emil Jarventie

The Scouting Report:

Emil Jarventie from Tampere, Finland, born on April 4th, 2005, is a strong two-way forward and top prospect in the 2023 NHL entry draft. Jarventie reads offensive plays with a solid purpose and integrates himself into the play in an impactful way. Jarventie is one of those prospects that you can’t miss, as he has an incredibly high ceiling. Jarventie solidifies the depth of the 2023 NHL draft class. Jarventie is also one of the absolute most fun players to watch in the 2023 NHL draft class. Emil Jarventie is currently listed as 5’10” and 168 pounds and is signed to a contract until the end of the 2024-25 season, which shouldn’t be a major issue for teams trying to build in future years.

Ranked #73 by Inside The Rink
Ranked #33 by NHL Central Scouting (EU Skaters)
Ranked #62 by TSN/Craig Button
Ranked #96 by Draft Prospects Hockey
Ranked #56 by Smaht Scouting
Ranked #89 by FC Hockey

Conrad Jack of Inside the Rink has Emil Jarventie projected at 65th overall.

I don’t see a scenario where Emil Jarventie falls out of the third round in the 2023 NHL entry draft. Jarventie won’t quite be a steal of a draft pick, though he will certainly be a draft pick that you wish you didn’t pass on.

Diving Deeper:

Emil Jarventie is certainly one of those players that stands out just outside of the first and second rounds. Jarventie found his game at the time when the NHL draft-eligible prospects were solidified for the first round, making a risk-to-reward situation relatively balanced. Let’s take a look at Emil Jarventie’s attributes and areas for improvement.

Offensive Read:

Emil Jarventie is one of those players that excel offensively but lacks defensively. However, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Emil Jarventie is an incredibly strong player when he’s on the breakout or pushing the puck through the neutral zone. This is one of those players that is strong at doing things that benefit his teammates and help build a solid draft resume.

“Järventie is an undersized but quick and electric winger. His feet are fast and he has a great motor, but his stride lacks power, and while his first steps are very quick, he doesn’t possess the greatest top speed. Järventie has good hands – notably in tight spaces – but he often relies too much on his skill and still needs to learn when to simplify his game. He flashes great playmaking ability at times, but it is very inconsistent, and he also makes a lot of questionable decisions with the puck. The most common problem is probably his poor shot selection – he has a hard wrist shot but not a very quick release and takes too many shots from the outside…” 

Eetu Siltanen – Dobber Prospects – Oct. 2022

Areas for Improvement:

Emil Jarventie is strong offensively, but he hasn’t found the simplicity in his game. This is the most crucial part of a player who is headed into their NHL draft-eligible year. When you can’t do the little things, such as shoot effectively, handle the puck into the offensive zone, and make a play effectively, you will stand out for those reasons. Emil Jarventie will be a solid NHL player if he improves in the right areas, especially what we’ve pointed out.

On-Ice Abilities:

Emil Jarventie has incredible on-ice abilities, and it speaks for itself. Jarventie has a strong shot, pass, visions, puckhandling in small samples, and great hands, as shown in his 2022-23 campaign.

Final Thoughts:

Emil Jarventie possesses a different skill set than his brother Roby Jarventie, Roby is an Ottawa Senators prospect currently playing for the Belleville Senators in the AHL. Emil is just as intriguing as his brother Roby, however, Emil is more of a project prospect. If Emil is properly developed, he can easily become a solid middle-six prospect who plays a solid defensive game and puts up a respective point total.
