Norrena Tidbit from ESPN

Fredrik who?!

In case you're wondering about Blue Jackets goalie Fredrik Norrena, I can tell you he's no green kid. Norrena turned 32 on Nov. 29. The Finnish-born stopper spent the past three seasons in the Swedish Elite League. He put up some impressive numbers for Linkoping, posting 14 shutouts over the previous two seasons. Prior to that, he spent several years in the Finnish League.

The Lightning took a flier on him in the seventh round of the 2002 draft, and later traded his rights to the Blue Jackets as part of the Marc Denis-Fredrik Modin deal.

After losing his first four decisions, he's won six straight games, including a pair of shutouts. In 12 games, he has an impressive .928 save percentage and a 1.99 goals-against average. I can't imagine the Lightning, who've been seeking steady goaltending help since the departure of Khabibulin, are too happy about Norrena's sudden emergence. In this case, the Bolts might have traded away a pretty good goalie. I guess we'll have to keep an eye on Norrena.
