So the news of the day is that Rich Peverley is off to JYP of the Finnish SM-Liiga. JYP happens to be the team that the Bruins have an agreement with; I believe Juukka Holtari, the Bruins' European Head of Scouting, is also JYP's player coordinator. So that's pretty cool I guess.
Tomorrow, we'll have a Public Skate for the KHL game which features Anton Khudobin's team (Atlant) vs. Alexander Khokhlachev's team (Spartak), so make sure you're online and ready to comment around 11:30 am ET. Khudobin's team has already won one game 5-2 with him in net, so it should be a good one.
