As opposed to some other teams, they only have one foreigner in their team, and he's not really a guy we'd know (a Swede by the name of Masuhr). Other teams definitely have bigger names in their line-ups, at least to date.

Other than Sami Kapanen, who is now 39, and Jukka Hentunen, who once played 28 games for Calgary, there really aren't any players of note who the well-informed NHL fan would even recognize. Of special interest is however Artturi Lehkonen, a 17 year-old who was expected to be a top 90 draft pick in the 2013 draft, but who has already started skyrocketing up the draft list by starting 3-5-8 in 7 games. Definitely a name to keep an eye on.
Thanks for the info. It sounds like Koskinen is playing behind a good team.
