There was also an article about Jake Virtanen (1st overall pick in the 2011 WHL draft). The Flying ‘V’ is apparently planning to visit Finland:

Culturally speaking, it was almost assured Jake Virtanen would become a hockey player - and not just because he hails from British Columbia. “My dad was born in Finland,” he said. “They love hockey there and he got me into it. I’m going to head up there when I’m 19 and see what the culture’s like.”

I hope the people at Finnish Hockey Association contact him and ask if he’s interested of coming to one of the U17 national team camps this summer.
