You may also not be aware of the fact that Finnish kids develop physically much slower than North Americans. Like I said in another post, many Finnish coaches, journalists and scouts have noted how in recent years Canadian kids have playoff beards in in WJC tournaments while our kids barely have pubic hair.
Is Rajala expected to get a top 6 role within the Ilves organization next season, and what is the timetable for his arrival in North America?
