Okay, so this was announced about two days ago, but in fairness...I was not following Leijonat and most of the Liiga teams at the time. A mistake I won’t be repeating.
For those who don’t speak Suomalainen:
Urho Vaakanainen in for the lions at the Junior World Championships! #SaiPa #OurBoys
Vaakanainen has been playing for the very Bruins flavored SaiPa and has been doing pretty well, all things considered. 3 points in 20 games, and has been a net positive in the depth pairings, and has been a rock solid attendee on all of the Under-23 teams of the past three years.
Good luck to him and Finland, I hope he sticks around for the World Juniors!
