December 2012 - Pokka is playing his second pro season with Kärpät in the SM-liiga. He has established his role in the second pairing and has averaged over 18 minutes per game. He has managed to put together eight points in 24 games so far. Pokka will play big minutes for Finland in the upcoming World Juniors. Miika Arponen
June, 2012 - Ville Pokka is a two-way defenceman with good positioning and decent offensive skills. In 2012/13 he played his first pro season with Kärpät in SM-liiga. He didn't contribute much offensively but he saw almost zero minutes of power play time. His production will likely go up next season with more experience and responsibilities in the offensive end too. Pokka is at least two or three years away from being NHL ready but he has the potential to become a solid NHL defenseman.
Modest upside. Is at least a few years away still.
