He was Finnish also and was attending all the Kings playoff games. Some of you may have seen him at Staples, I saw him at least a couple of times more during the Final.

I found some Whiting stuff below, for reference.

Cool link, thanks.. I didn't realize that Real Lemieux died so young until just now.. He was only 30. I got a chance to play in the Forum before a Kings game in '74, weird to think some of those guys are gone now.

If you look at the bottom of the story its a memorial written by a guy who wore Juha's jersey for the 2012 SCF's...
