4 points in 13 games.

If he can't produce in the Norwegian league... I think we can stop holding our breath about him still being a project.

Looks like the team is being led by twins from Oakville, kinda neat. I often wonder what life as a professional hockey player in Europe is like. I've read the pay is rather mixed, but sounds like an awesome experience for at least a year or two.

Random note: Justin Pogge's playing in Italy this year: http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php?pid=73463
