Congrats to Eric Perrin for a dart in OT to win the title, too.
What do you mean by frozen? Like the loan is indefinite until we, Riku, and his agent agree that Riku is ready to come back to the NHL? That would be good since there probably is no out-clause on his contract with his Finnish club.

My guess is that there are certain agreements laid down in the begging of a loan such as this player will play here for this amount of time, but l don't know if that holds up this long now that he has switched leagues, teams, signed a pro contract in Europe. We still hold his NHL rights because Yzerman made a qualifying offer but the loan may be over since he never re-signed.
