How about now after his 12 game addition in the NHL? Any expanded thoughts on Hartikainen? If you're asking Oiler fans who watch him, they're really happy with his play. I can't comment on the other Finnish prospects, but I thought some Finnish folk might be happy to see one of their own doing well as a very young kid.

I guess keep in mind we might like him so much because he offers skills and talents, like size and grit and power around the net, that aren't common on our team.

First NHL goal if you hadn't seen it.
