It sure does. Kotkansalo, Niemeläinen, Vaakanainen, Felixson, Vesalainen, Koivula, Nurmi, Kuokkanen, Somppi and the list goes on...

Nurmi is a good prospect. Siren was an all-star at Pohjola camp, but I don't think his upside is particularly high.

It's Stråka, not Straka, those two are pronounced quite differently. Stråka is a fairly common surname in a Swedish speaking coastal town of Nykarleby (Uusikaarlepyy in Finnish). Stråke is a Swedish word for a spring or a bow, just speculating and I could be way off, but perhaps the name derives from that.
