Danish Hockey-"Mafia" in SM-liiga

With the lockout continuing it seems that it would be interesting to see the impact of the danish contingent of players in Finland. Nichlas Hardt "broke the ice" playing for Tappara in 2007-2008 and this year the floodgates have opened.
To what degree have the danish players contributed to their respective teams offensively, defensively or in other respects?

Nichlas Hardt - Jokerit: 1G 1A in 5 games -3 statistics.
- sadly injured again after just coming back from a knee injury.

Simon Nielsen - Lukko: 3,04 GAA; 0,888 S% in 7 games.
- some regression from last year (S% 0,905)

Frans Nielsen - Lukko: 1G 13A in 14 games +7 statistics
- lots of assists, less luck in shootouts and scoring goals before last night.

Mikkel Bødker - Lukko: 11G 5A in 16 games +8 statistics
- great offensive chemistry with Frans Nielsen.

Philip Larsen - Lukko: 4G 4A in 14 games +8 statistics
- plays most minutes for Lukko almost every match, (more goals than E. Karlsson).

(In Lukko injured Pesonen with +4 statistics, Riska with +2 and Elo with +1 are the only other Lukko players with a + statistics).

Jannik Hansen - Tappara: 1G 3A in 4 games +2 statistics
- great start, but no points last two games

Lars Eller - JYP: 2G 0A in 1 games +1 statistics.
- also shootout winner.

Then we still wait to hear from either Lukko and/or Peter Regin.......what's happening??

Danish Ex-SM-liiga:
Patrick Galbraith (leaving Blues he got the "blues"): Catastrophic start (which will likely be his end) in Frölunda.
From Blues 2,69 GAA; 0,900 S% in 20 matches to Frölunda 4,73 GAA; 0,843 S% in 3 matches.
