He didn't impress me much at the WJC either.

Personally, I think Kadri needs to spend half a season with the Marlies to iron his game out more.

I did like what I saw from Brad Ross, Sondre Olden, McKegg, Gysbers, and Rynnas.
His hit at the start of the game may have seemed a little wreckless, but if you watch closely, the player was turning towards him and then lost the puck and looked down. Kadri caught him but the hit was clean.

He actually drew a penalty on the play because Lalonde went after him. Other than that, i'm not sure what he did that could be interpreted as wreckless or undisciplined.

Dallas Eakins loving Sondre Olden

New start for Olden

It wasn't planned, but during a power play in Saturday's 6-3 win over Chicago, big Norwegian left winger Sondre Olden found himself on the point of the power play. He made two nice plays to keep the puck alive for an eventual Kenny Ryan goal and ended the night with a goal and assist.

"That young man is definitely a great draft pick for us," coach Dallas Eakins said. "As a coach you're doing so many things, but as the game goes on, you start looking for certain names because they've been going so well. As that game went on, his name was in my head constantly to try and get him back on the ice."
