The Copper & Blue: I guess the first question I have to ask is how is the knee? Toni Rajala: The knee is very good. I've played twelve games and I've got no problems with it. I'm very happy with it now.
C & B: What was your reaction to being drafted by the Oilers? I'm sure that you're aware of the Finnish connection there. Rajala: It was very nice. I was happy because I know that Edmonton is a big hockey town. I also know that there are many great Finns that have played in Edmonton. I was happy when they drafted me.
C & B: What has the transition to North America been like for you? Rajala: Brandon is a nice place to be, it's a very nice city and my teammates are really great guys. It's been easy to make this transition.
Good interview. Rajala seems like he knows what he's got to work on. He's a guy I like quite a bit. I'm hoping he follows through on his words and adds some strength to help win puck battles. He'll need that at higher levels.
