Jere Karalahti

Just looking at the stats on the SM-Liiga website, it's surprising to see that Jere has bounced back with 17 points in 25 games and is one of the top defensemen in the league.

Also, 84 penalty minutes..

I know he is 35 and has had all kinds of problems with the law, drugs, etc.. Has he disqualified himself from international play? I wouldn't mind seeing him at the world champs next year if he keeps up the good play.

I don't think he's disqualified by any means. There was even some talk about him getting to play in the Euro Hockey Tour. The coach Jukka Jalonen even mentioned that he has a chance to play there if he keeps this up.

I'm sure we'll see him at one of the EHT-tournaments this season but the WC's are a totally different thing.

Karalahti was once a strong talent for Finland on defense. He had a lot of drug related issues which basically destroyed his career. I would be ecstatic for him if he was able to return to form at this age. Here's hoping that Jere has shaken off his demons and all the best of luck to him!

Not deserved, there are about 40mins extra for being Jere... Thrown out from the game because small "fight" =max 2mins and a bit rough hit, which should have been max 2+10
