• The Maatta family keeps in close contact despite being separated by the Atlantic Ocean. . Olli Skypes with his family in Finland three times a week, and his mother regularly watches his OHL games via live Internet streams -- “It’s late when she watches, around 2:00 a.m., so she’s tired.”

• Maatta credits former teammates and fellow draft prospects Samu Markkula (No. 61 ranked European skater) and Topi Nattinen (No. 115-ranked European skater) as having a big influence on his career -- “We talked about hockey all the time and had a competition about everything.”

• Maatta started playing hockey in 2000 after he complained to his parents that all of the other kids were allowed to play hockey – “They didn’t have any other choice but to buy hockey equipment.”
