JYP has three games left and Vatanen is two points shy of being the league leading defenseman (With ten less games played).

Vatanen is skillful and fast. Still I think he will be too small for being elite defenceman in the Nhl. If he dominates in finnish EliteLeague it doesn't mean anything...

TBF to Sami he has about the same frame as Lubo does, and I'd consider that Lubo was an elite offensive defenceman at one point in his career.

Vatanen so far with one assist in tonight's game with around 25 minutes left to play.

edit: Game ended with Sami's team winning 3-0 and he had that one assist, +1 and most minutes on his team (25:29). No stars though (bust ). Vatanen is 11th in playing time averaging 23:41 per game. Guy is a workhorse.

Something I just re-found and thought of...
Hopefully Sami can retain his number over to Anaheim and we can get a "Mighty 44" nickname thing going on for him.

Just because:

Vatanen with OT goal tonight and +2. 3rd star of the game.

edit: Vatanen received pretty nasty hit but he's alright.

Nice slapper indeed.

But why do the commentators still keep saying he's 175cm (5'9) long? That is old information, he's about 179cm (5'10-5'11) now.

I guess they just checked it from SM-liiga.com, the home of old information.

Next year. He's already too good to play in SM-Liiga.

He's already signed

If we lose Schultz I'm more than ok with this kid taking the 6th spot

Vatanen scored again! This time on a penalty shot. He was also the first star of the game, great defensive effort too today.

The regular season ended, Vatanens stats:

49 GP 14G + 28A = 42 points +11

He has been very impressive since coming back from the injury, 9 game point streak with 12 points to end the season!

Regular season ended yesterday and the trophies were given from the regular season, and Vatanen was chosen as the best defenseman in the league.

Edit: So it was just some tabloid huh... only read the "best defenseman" parts on the SM-league website, my bad.

No. He was chosen as Ilta-Sanomien Tähtipuolustaja(****** tabloid's star defenseman)

I wonder if we'll see him in Anaheim for the rest of the year or not. Couldn't hurt
