Scouting Reports:
“Big Finnish goaltender with a well-rounded skill set, Luukkonen takes up a lot of the net with his strong sense of positioning and plays his angles well, has good hands and can track the puck well to limit his rebounds, works well at looking around screens in front of his net as well.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“An athletic puck stopper with the size that NHL teams covet in their creases…wide butterfly stance helps him cover the majority of the low net naturally…fluid in his movements and quick laterally in the crease…drops down and pops back up to his feet better then a six-foot-four stopper should…while he has impressive size he is not held to playing a puck blocking style but instead has the technique, quick reflexes and rebound control to be an all-round netminder…sees the ice well and can find the puck through heavy traffic…has the focus and mental game to play well regardless if he sees a heavy shot workload in a game or is involved sparingly…handles the puck well, stopping the puck for his defense or shooting a quick pass to jump start the attack…just a super composed kid…missing a month of action early on due to pneumonia…has NHL starting goaltender upside.  (November 2016)” – Future Considerations
