Niinimaki has left the building!

I spent the second and third periods of Saturday's game sitting with Jesse Niinimaki. Most of what we talked about was just idle chit-chat but I did get some of it on tape (mostly WJC stuff I'm working on).

He is going back to Finland on Sunday (Dec 21) but may come back again before the season ends. I know in talking with Kevin Prendergast at the game that the Oilers are going to be VERY hands on with his rehab (for more you'll have to read the K.P. interview when it hits your screen sometime next week).

Great kid, good attitude and seems to be well liked in the dressing room already. Let's just hope that shoulder heals well!

Do you know what his time frame is to be playing hockey in North America?

If all goes according to plan... Next year. More coming in the Kevin Prendergast interview you'll be able to read in about a week.
