I would guess that yes. Took the brake still playing really well and now in full health.
Did/were KalPa going to retire his jersey to the roof? I think there was talk of that when I spent my last year in Finland when he was in what was thought to be his last season. I took the (far far far too long) bus journey from Tampere to Kuopio and I think they only have 1 or 2 numbers retired so far.
Holy poop. Defenceman Markus Seikola to Pelicans with a 2+1 - year contract.
Pelicans also make a one year extension with veteran defender Jan Latvala.
Amazing signing, he was awesome with Ilves a couple of seasons ago, the amount of powerplay blueline slapshot goals he scored for them was really quite something, although he wasn't always the best at the actual defence side of things
Pekka Virta, head coach. KalPa -> TPS (2 years)
Antti Erkinjuntti (W) TPS -> Tappara (2 years)
Sami Venäläinen (W) TPS -> Tappara (2 years)
Jussi Makkonen (C) TPS -> Tappara (2 years)
We're bringing in some good players for next season, last year was a disaster, bringing in some established players is a good thing, these 3 and Männikö give me some confidence, hopefully there will be a few more coming in and no more going out.
