Kapanen update

I was looking for news a few weeks ago and actually e-mailed Bill Meltzer to ask if he knew of any North American media that was following Sami over in Finland. He got right back to me (which was pretty awesome) but said that he didn't know of any.

So I was very happy to find this: http://www.thehockeynews.com/article...he-rescue.html

Quote:
Twenty years ago, KalPa, in Kuopio, was an up-and-coming team in the Finnish SM-liiga. It was promoted to the highest division in 1986 and in 1991 finished second in the league. It was in that season a 17-year-old Sami Kapanen made his debut and picked up three points in eight post-season games.

Three years later, Kapanen led the team in scoring and three years after that he was in the NHL.
(Continued)

I always liked having him on the team and I miss his leadership and experience.

Thanks! I miss Sami, but I'm very, very glad he left the NHL on his terms.

That's a good point. Good for him. Still wouldn't mind seeing the guy grinding his career out for us right now though. But with our overabundance of forwards yada yada.
