Blues trade 8th rounder for finnish prospect

Hes got good size and picks up PIM's although I am sure that 175 PIM' s in that league is far different than 175 in a North American league.

the funny thing is that Tampa didnt think much of him they took an 8th round pick for him? Hopefully Yarmo knows something about this kid.

He's been playing reasonably well lately for Ilves (the Blues press release is wrong) with 8 points in 16 games but in all honesty there's not much there. He's been a decent checking liner in the SM-liiga for a few years now but he hardly has the kind of skill set that screams future NHLer.

Considering he is already 24 and the Lightning had no plans for him I'm sure they're thrilled to recoop the 8th round pick they originally spent to take him.
