Jesse Joensuu (ok he as 16 at the start of the season, 17 most of it)
First two are not great but good enough to be regulars. Apart from that some decent SM-liiga players: Ossi Louhivaara, Arsi Piispanen, Lennart Petrell, Jarkko Immonen (the one in Blues), Ville Varakas, Jesse Saarinen, Marko Anttila and Miika Wiikman.
Not a great list but at least everyone of those has had better career than Vidgren.
