Finns playing for other countries?

Which other finns have we seen play for other countries internationally?

Tomas Sandström played for Sweden
Juha Kaunismäki plays for Norway
Petri Ylönen played for france

etc.

I'd figure there are more guys who naturally have double nationalities like Wiikman, Boumedienne, etc. but I am looking for more guys who during their playing careers gained a new nationality.

Pentti Lund got American citizenship during his playing career, I don't think he played for team USA though.

Aren't both his parents born in Finland as well as himself? And he grew up in Fagersta... How many from Fagersta are not finns?
