Some potential late season additions:

Emil Molin:

His team in HockeyAllsvenskan only has 3 games remaining, and they are 6 points out of the final playoff spot. Plus, the 7th place team has a game in hand. He could potentially complete the season here on 3/2.

Even though Molin is not currently on the team, you'd think his Elitserien team Brynäs would require him to remain in the country until their season is complete just in case they have injuries. The team is in the final playoff spot as of right now. 5 games remain in this season, and they have a 4 point lead which is not much in a league that awards 3 points for a regulation win. Even if they sneak in, they only have 15 wins and -42 goal differential. You never want to say never, but they should theoretically have little chance in the playoffs. The latest the first round would end is March 25th, and they could be done as soon as March 19th. If by chance they miss the playoffs all together, they'll be done on the 5th of March.

The only other league he could play in is the junior team for Brynäs. They are in 9th place with 6 games remaining. Their season ends on 3/10. I can't find exact details on the Anton Cup, but I know Brynas is already qualified for the 16 team playoffs. They play 3 game series. Last season, the champion was named on April 1st.

Jyrki Jokipakka:

Ilves is hands down the worst team in the SM Liiga. They are 20 points behind the next team, and firmly in last place. This means they will have to play in the relegation round to attempt to stay in the league. That round could end no sooner than March 30th and no later than April 6th.
