Is he still playing in the Elite League in Finland? If so, how is he doing? I apoligize in advance for likely not spelling his last name correctly.

He played last season with SaiPa in the highest league in Finland (SM-liiga) but seems to be left without a contract right now. Last season he had 8 +10 = 18 points along with 65 PIM in 50 games.

And you did better than most non-finns would with the last name, it is Riihijärvi.

I don't think so. He has atleast not had a single season to prove that he would have been worth it anyway. One just wonders what would happen if such a huge guy would have panned out and become a solid player... A 199 cms long geezer can't be bad to have on the national team :D

He plays in Södertälje in the Swedish elite league now. He was brought to the struggling team in the middle of the season, was signed after a try-out, and has done 4+3=7p in 17 games.
