Sounds like he aggravated his shoulder injury. Damaged goods.

Shoulder injuries are no joke. For every guy that can come back from them, there's 5 or so that can't.

That's likely why they were willing to trade Aulin.

I don`t know is that injury any serious. Tukonen was interviewed after the game and then he said that they will fight as hard as they can against USA. Finland have nothing to loose, cause USA is favourite in that game.

Nothing mentioned about injury. So I guess if there is injury it`s not very serious.

I hope so. Here's to hoping that he'll light up the tourney.

Yeah Tukonen played very well, he might have scored two goals, not sure if he deflected that last goal in. He had a strong game and was one of the best forwards out there. Unfortunately Finland got completely robbed by the ref in this one, other than that it was a nice game. Tukonen surprised me, much better than he was last year in Finland (well of course that was expected but...he was better than for example Kessel)

The reffing was atrocious! He happened to be a Swede, and we all know about the Swedes and Finns rivalry. The fans in Canada were cheering for Finland the whole way through.......but I see that as a good thing. I can't wait for the US to play the Canadians!
Game was overshadowed by horrible reffing, and Finland could never really get into the flow of things. Tukonen had a good game, but hardly had any shifts in the first two periods (due to penalties). Lots of really good talent on both ends. Both Johnson's looked very good for the US on D. Kessel, Oshie, and Wheeler stood out the most in my eyes for the US offense. Ryan wasn't all that spectacular.
Tukonen will be the next coming of Holmstrom, and will get better with age. May have better hands also. He went at it with both Johnson's quite a bit. Good nastiness in this game too. Tukonen should have been awarded that second goal as it changed direction (he tipped it in my eyes).....Game was 6 - 3 at one point so he never scored a tying goal.

On a side note. Pierre McGuire is a total homer and dip ****! He's like the Dick Vitale of hockey, only worse!

Tukonen's goal was very sweet. What poise and puck control. A natural goal-scorer in the making, in my opinion.

It seemed like he was on the ice for the last five minutes. He was causing havoc. His goal was a break away, and he made a great collection on the pass. He roofed it........and you're right it was very sweet. I see him becoming a second to third line winger in the future......but he's definitely a diamond that will continue to get shaped. Good size and speed, and he plays fearless!

It seems to be forgotten that Tukonen turned 19 couple months back and won't be 20 until September 1, 2006. He is developing at a good pace moving from the SM-Liiga to Manchester.

First of all, I'm glad Tuk is OK and having a good tournament. We are very much looking forward to his return to Manchester.

I posted some thoughts/observations here in reply to questions about him.
