With the NHL Combine underway, Olli Juolevi is selling himself.

The fifth-ranked North American skater, and second-ranked defenseman believes he's the best available, citing his on-ice intelligence as the reason.

Property of the London Knights, Juolevi is ranked one spot behind Sarnia Sting rearguard Jakob Chychrun, but he's built an impressive resume leading up to the draft, winning a gold medal for Finland at the World Junior Championships and the Memorial Cup with London.

Both players are expected to be top 10 picks come June 24th.
