Johan Harju
 
What ever happened to this guy? I was just looking at the Free Agent Thread on the Main Boards and I saw his name. It seemed like Harju was a very promising prospect and a lot of Lightning fans on HFboards really seemed to like him.Ever since the Yzerman regime has come in, it seems like he has disappeared. He put up 53 points with Norfolk in 2011 and has since gone to play in Sweden. Any chances he returns to the NHL?

Won't be re-signed imo.

He doesn't want to play in the AHL. He started to give up when he wasn't getting the call ups and as soon at the Ads season was over he ran back to Sweden. He was good enough imo to make it and be an NHL player. It's his own fault he failed.

Unless someone promises him a locked up spot on their NHL roster, he's not coming back.

Pretty sure his stint in the KHL broke him, or messed with him mentally.

Seems like his ego took a really big bruise.....

His attitude wasn't the right one when he was here

Wasn't the KHL stint before he came to North America?

Yeah, he played great in the SEL before that but under performed in the KHL then didn't make much of an impact here and hasn't been making much of an impact in the SEL now.
