Yeah, he's one of the local boys and plays for the local team, but I have never seen him play. I don't follow SM-Liiga, but my brother said he is/was his teams best player.

This was totally useless comment. Haha.

If he's willing to play in the AHL, great. This team is so desperate for forward depth at the minor league level.

Can't complain. Devils need some forward talent in their organization, especially of the young variety. Who knows what happens at the AHL level. He may prove himself into getting an opportunity even up here at some point.

Guess this is what happens when half your AHL team goes up to the NHL and saves your asses during the playoffs.

I wonder if his skills were noticed the "world" tournament this past May (after the season) . I hope he shoots righty, and like to bang bodies.

Devils have had a lot of success with undrafted FAs. I know absolutely nothing about the kid but my faith in Conte and his staff gives me hope.
