Drawn to hockey from an early age, Patrik honed his hockey skills starting at just four years of age, actually playing in every position including goaltender, which was his favorite position, before switching to forward when he turned 12 after his father took matters into his own hands.
He first played for a local club – Ilves – but then joined Tappara, a local competitor team. Patrik continued to improve and became a professional when 16 years old, leaving school and focusing primarily on hockey. In his first season as a professional, Patrik played in six games for Tappara, making one point, but he mostly played on loan for the club LeKi which competed in Mestis, and in 36 games scored 12 points, scoring five goals and making seven assists. Thanks to his great plays at LeKi, Patrik was brought back to Tappara, and the following year played in 46 games, scoring 17 goals and added 16 assists for 33 points. He won the Jari Kurri Trophy, given to the MVP of the Liiga Play-offs.
Thanks to his successful plays in Finland and at International championships, Patrik caught the attention of NHL scouts, and was predicted as a top prospect. After a few more successful games at WJC and WC in 2016 with Finland, in which he won gold and silver medals, Patrik advanced to second pick position in the upcoming NHL Entry Draft.
After the draft, Patrik signed a rookie scale contract with the Winnipeg Jets over three years, which further increased his net worth. He made his debut on the 13th October 2016, in which he scored a goal and also had an assist to his name. Patrik finished his rookie season with 73 games played in which he scored 36 goals, and added 28 assists for the record of 64 points, breaking the franchise record for most goals in a single season by a rookie, previously held by Ilya Kovalchuk with 29 goals. He received an invitation to the NHL All-Star game for 2017 season, and was also named Rookie of the Month for February.
When it comes to his personal life, Patrik has been in a relationship with woman’s ice hockey player Sanna Kiukas since 2016.
