Remember the name Juuso Kopra because you just might hear that name again in the near future. The Finnish goaltender, who just turned 16 six days ago, plays for the Kisa-Eagles’ under-18 team in Finland’s Jr. B Mestis.
On Sunday, Kopra’s team lost to Porin Ässät 5-0. Normally that scoreline would reflect poorly on the losing goaltender, but Kopra made 100 saves on 105 shots in the losing effort. 39 of those saves came in the third period alone.
You’re reading that correctly: One game, 100 saves.
