Veeti Miettinen appears on his way to the professional game after a solid college career, but it's not going to be with the Maple Leafs who drafted him.

Kyle Dubas developed a reputation as someone who can find good value anywhere in the NHL Draft, and many around the Toronto Maple Leafs believed they found that in the sixth round of the 2020 NHL Draft when they selected Veeti MiettinenThe Finnish winger is undersized at 5-foot-9 and 168 pounds, but he has plenty of skill that he showed off at St. Cloud State, tallying a solid 118 points in 146 games played over four years.
It was his discipline that impressed most however, as he took exactly 0 penalties over that four year stretch, and now he's headed to the professional ranks, but as of right now, it appears as though it won't be for the team that drafted him.
Leafs' prospect Veeti Miettinen is turning Pro.

However, the current indication is it won't be with the Leafs. He would be a UFA on August 15th.

The 22-year old has all the skill to make it at the highest level, and while there's no word on his potential market when he hits free agency this summer, there will certainly be teams interested in him for a bottom-six role. His tune could certainly change regarding the Maple Leafs as well, but right now, Miettinen is unlikely to sign with the team that drafted him back in 2020, and will take the chance on the open market in the off-season.
