2013 WJC Preview: Finland features solid group of forwards, defensemen

Coaching-wise, veteran Harri Lindell took over for Helminen this year, coaching the team in the Lake Placid summer camp and throughout the fall both in the squad's Mestis exhibition tour and the Four Nations Tournament in Sweden.
