Fair enough. But Kookoo or Pelicans don't have a team associated with their organization going that far back in age group. I was just asking if there was 16 yr. old age group hockey that is the starting point of a team's feeder system. Pulkkinen, Rajala, Lekhonnen, etc. worked there way through their organizations system right? under 16- under 18- junior squad- to Mestis and SM-Ligga right?
