Per a pretty much impossible to read (The Cape?!) translated article, per Elite Prospects, says that Jyri Niemi is close to signing with HPK of Finland. Niemi, 22, was a 3rd round pick, 72nd overall, of the NY Islanders in 2008, before being traded to the NY Rangers when the Islanders weren't going to sign him. Niemi has struggled to even stick in the AHL, splitting his last two years between the AHL and ECHL. He is scheduled to become a RFA this summer, though I expect the Rangers won't qualify him and he'll become an UFA.

Dan O'Toole: "So if I have this right, only acceptable goal celebration in NHL is to put hands at your sides and then feel shame."
