Pos: G
D.O.B.: 12/29/89
From: Toijala, FIN
Height: 6'1
Weight: 205
Shoots: Right
Drafted: 2008 draft 4th rnd, 106th overall by San Jose (NHL)
Acquired: Signed to 1-yr contract by Detroit (NHL) 7/1/18
Plus: Quick and athletic... Butterfly style netminder goes post to post well... Plays angle very well...
Minus: High shots can be tough since he is down early... Rebound control could use work...
Organizational Comments: Panthers Coach Bob Boughner "I see him way more aggressive in his net than he was a week ago, I think that comes obviously with some playing time and confidence. His rebound control is strong. There's not too many times where they got a shot and a second and third opportunity from the slot area. I think he's doing a real good job of kicking them into the corners and it helps our defense big time."
What GRC says: Summer 2018 With the organizational depth at goaltender in question, Sateri comes in to stabilize the position, providing an excellent starter at the AHL level and A highly regarded third stringer for Detroit. The Finish netminder is an athletic goalie who works out of the butterfly, and is capable of making jaw dropping saves as he always seems to be in position to make the stop.

Role: Starting Netminder
Projection: NHL Backup
