Mäkitalo bloodlines

Hi finnish hockey fans,
I have a question for you. In swedish hockey tournament TV-Pucken for 15 year olds, there's a leading sniper called Petter Mäkitalo, who is the son of former hockey player Kari Mäkitalo who played 3 seasons in SM-Liiga for Kiekkoreipas. Is Kari Mäkitalo related by blood to the more famous Jarmo Mäkitalo, who also played for Kiekkoreipas during the same seasons 1977-1980. Later Jarmo moved to Leksand in swedish elite league, and Kari played one season in Mora in the second league. Mora is a placed very close to Leksand. Maybe Mäkitalo is quite common name, but I thought there was so many common denoters that they may be related? Are they brothers?

Thanks

I don't know if they're related but Mäkitalo is very common name in Finland.

E: According to Eliteprospects Jarmo has a 1995-born son Tom.

Yup. And Petter is born 1996. Petter & Tom are for sure NOT brothers, but possible cousins...if Kari & Jarmo would be brothers, but Im just simply guessing about that relation. Just thought it was a odd coincedence that both Kari & Jarmo played for Kiekkoreipas 1977-80, according to elite prospects.

Jake Virtanen and Petter Mäkitalo - the most promising 96-born players with Finnish bloodlines. Would be nice to see them playing for Finland, but I guess the chance of that happening is between 0 and 1 percent.

Thanks for the effort. Those old hockey albums are handy to have sometimes

It turned out that there are two different Kari Mäkitalo that has played hockey, but Eliteprospects had by mistake combined them into one player profile.

P. Mäkitalo isnt a relative of the brothers you linked above. At least not close relative. P.s father was another Kari Mäkitalo, and his grandfather played in the finnish national team in bandy, I've read, in a different internet forum.

P.Mäkitalos mother is swedish though. Same thing with Pääjärvi. Since you finns have a bad habit of stealing our women I think it's fair that we can keep the offspring

On top of that, d-man Sebastian Aho was awarded MVP in the TV-pucken tournament, and he's also of finnish origin. And Joar Moilanen scored a goal in the final game, for the champions, Västerbotten.

Damn, i wish he was playing in/for Finland. Great goal scorer with a nice shot and good defensive play. Very good allround game!

Dont ask them so much for Åland. Lets trade it for nylander.

Funny, this is third time on boards when trading Åland has been on the conversation. I think it should be tipped for kummola.

A bucket of pucks is enough for Åland.

Sweden has lots and lots more of those half Finnish athletes and still they are taking the glory when Finns win something.

For real, i think Finnish names in sweden are not even close to be as common as Swedish names in Finland.

I dont even care about those finnish named players playing in tre kronor jersey, i think everyone has one shot to choose their sides, and then its done and wont ever change

Skipped the Swedish class too often?

Kuusilehto. I hardly think the name is anything special though.

Oh cmon, NHL 12 without our high taxes. I rather save about 30 euros than buy it from local store.

And about this surname thing, Finland is bilingual country we are allowed to have Swedish surnames.
