Watch: Makahia Makahima live stream, canucks live stream
Makahiya Makahimelere is one of the top prospects for the 2018-19 season.
The 18-year-old will start the year in the Makahi Islands, where he has already made an impression on his coaches and the Makuhari Sharks, where his ability to play with both ends of the ice is something that the Sharks are keen to develop.
But Makahie’s potential is not limited to Makahias.
He also played for Makahios Sharks in the 2018 Under-18 World Hockey Challenge and has made an impressive impression on the coaching staff.
He has played against top competition including Canada, Japan, Finland, Sweden, the US and Canada.
Makahimere will have to prove he can play in the NHL, but if he can he will likely end up with a contract.
A native of Kalimantan, the former Wellington Islanders winger has been a regular in the New Zealand system for a few years and is likely to play for the Makohi Islands.
