Eero Kilpeläinen to EV Zug (National League A /Switzerland)

Today they wrote that Kilpeläinen signed in Zug to replace shaky boucher.

But i didnt see anything official. Im wondering if there were any news in finland about?

And why was Eero replaced in the Jokerit net for this season? was it because of the playoff performance or were there any special reasons?

What are your opinions about him?

IMO this should have been put to the transactions/rumors thread.

Jokerit have confirmed the move and so have medias.

Eero melted so bad at last playoffs so this was kind of expected especially what Hjallis have been spoken about the subject. Starting from the Jokerit --> KHL presser.

Eero is a good goaltender but there is always a risk to bad performances. Maybe leaving Jokerit will do good for him. Jokerit really isn't a good platform to develop goalies atm.

IMO Kilpeläinen should fit well in Switzerland because as a goalie he is like the world famous Swiss cheese: full of holes.

Kilpeläinen is well known as being one of the most superstitious goalies. If during warm ups some player skates across his crease and mixes up his "routine", he might not catch a single puck all night.

That's true. I noticed that during last season he does the exact same things if something happens and in the beginning of the game.

For example everytime the other team went to the Offensive Zone, Kilpeläinen would leave the crease in a certain way, and he did it the same way every time.
