Finnish goalies in the NHL, AHL and the prospect in the NHL
Any kind of discussion on Finnish goaltenders.
So....any rumors of any of those prospect goalies coming over to North America this summer?
Which ones would have the best chance (in due time) of performing well in the NHL?
Niko Hovinen has been playing well for Pelicans and is showing some promise. Probably not ready for North America yet, but if he continues to develop, who knows. At least he has one of the best goalie coaches in Finland.
Harri Säteri alone will keep stand (Tampere Tappara).
The same can be said about Atte Engren (Turku TPS).
Teemu Lassila (Hämeenlinna HPK) and Iiro Tarkki (Espoo Blues) have for many years been playing a game of excellence.
Eero Kilpeläinen (Pori Ässät) has increased this year, Finnish ice hockey league's top of the head
goalie (albeit a few years would require grinding AHL).
Niko Hovinen (Lahti Pelicans) shines every day I find goals in the league's best goalkeeper at the moment.
