It seems that Lehkonen had a little encounter with Kristian Kudroc just before the goal.

Yep, the odds are definitely heavily against us, but it doesn’t hurt to give it a try. Playing for Finland might have some benefits in comparison to Canada. For example it’s easier to make the WJC roster as a draft prospect and later on the chances of getting to play at the Olympics are higher.

The article doesn’t mention anything about military service, but I guess that in his case it really doesn’t make any sense to even consider that option. He’s probably going to be playing in WHL for next few seasons and if things go well it’s NHL/AHL after that.

Minnesota had 5 players in the top-40; Granlund, Brodin, Coyle, Hackett and Larsson. Not the easiest top-10 to break into.
