Where will he be next year?

Some places I've seen he's supposed to start the year in the AHL in Oklahoma... Do you think he'll have any call ups next season?

Thanks in advance!

Well, i assume he will be with Brandon once again... As he is still 19, he can't go play in the AHL unless he gets permission from Brandon to do so because of agreements between the CHL and the AHL.



So, he will likely have a full year in junior, meaning no callups barring emergency situations. Unless he makes the team that is...

He was drafted out of Finland, so he can play in the AHL at any time.

Yeah Europeans are exempt if they played CHL AFTER they were drafted.

I read he's going back to Finland to complete mandatory military service.

I don't think anyone's said for sure yet, but when he joined the Wheat Kings last season it sounded like he planned to return to Finland this year.

All indications are that he will play next year in Finland and complete his military service. The only thing that makes me think he will be playing in OKC next year is his eliteprospects profile:

Even if he stayed in North America I don't think he would have gotten a look next season.

I forgot about the conscript service...

That means a sad partial season from Toni probably.
