    Siim Liivik from Estonia. He's playing for HIFK in finland though. He has finnish citizenship though. I don't know if you'd count him Estonian? Estonian born, but finnish raised.

    Siim Liivik is as much Estonian as Wojtek Wolski is Polish. Liivik learned his hockey in Finland and is currently playing for Finland in the WJC in Czech R. I don't know if he considers himself as Estonian, Finnish or (most likely) both but he will never represent the Estonian national team. So I wouldn't consider him as an Estonian prospect.

    Besides Liivik Leo Komarov has Estonian (Estonian Russian) backround.

    I'd say goalies Mark Rajevski (Narva PSK) and Villem H. Koitmaa (Tallinn Purikad) have both a chance. Both are born in 1990.

    Defenceman Artjom Abramov played in Kazan Ak Bars and Moscow Spartak last year. He is big (193 cm) and has skills.

    Alos in Finland defenceman Vitali Soitu (Tampere Tappara) is worth mentioning. Last season played with Helsinki HIFK and won Finnish Championship, was alternate Captain of the squad. But abandoned Estonian citizenship and replacedit with Finnish as lives in Finland permanently now.

    Estonia Uku Mölder

    For anybody who has seen him play, what are your impressions of Uku Mölder and his potential, strengths, weaknesses, etc? He is very thin but he was second leading scorer (only by fewer goals) on the 2008 U18 World Championships team, so I'm thinking he has good wheels or good hockey sense, but I'd like eye-witness accounts. Also, how did he perform over the course of the year in the Estonian league?

    Thanks in advance to anybody who has information.
