Managed to get a word from my new friend and Finnish sports writer Sami Hoffrén on how his countrymen and the Oilers goalie prospects Tuohimaa and Perhonen are doing over there (or well, more like over here to me).
Tuohimaa has played in the last six Jokerit games (and he’s been) pretty good. Tonight (he had) 38 saves and allowed 4 goals in a loss against Ässät. Jokerit’s number one goalie has been injured and should return to the lineup later this week.
I’m not sure about Perhonen’s exact status. He was a backup goalie tonight for JYP Akatemia, where he has played seven games.
In other goalie news: Oilers prospect Tyler Bunz was taken to hospital after getting hit in the head with a puck while sitting on the bench for Team WHL. Precautionary testing is what I’ve heard. Lets hope it’s nothing more and that he is OK.
