Former Pen on other side of preseason game

Postby OneTimer on Wed Sep 24, 2008 6:02 pm

For the Pens' preseason game in Finland

http://www.nhl.com/nhl/app?articleid=38 ... rvice=page

There are several Finnish players on Jokerit's roster with NHL ties. Riksman, the goalie, was signed by St. Louis, but left the team after just one AHL game. He has been named first star in each of Jokerit's last two games.

Defensemen Mikko Jokela (New Jersey), Mikko Kuparinen (Tampa Bay), Mikko Kalteva (Colorado), Marko Kauppinen (Philadelphia), Sami Helenius (Calgary) and Tom Koivisto (St. Louis), and forwards Petri Varis (San Jose), Jani Rita (Edmonton), Jan-Mikael Juutilainen (Chicago) and Tomi Maki (Calgary) all were drafted by NHL clubs.


I wonder if he plans to be invisible in this game or not.

i wonder if there is anyone on the current pens roster who even played with rita when he was here? fleury? orpik? scuds? i think rita may have been gone before any of them got here.

Sid, Fleury, Orpik, Gonchar, Whitney were all here.

He came late in the 2005-2006 season.

Niklas Nordgren

I feel sorry for whoever won his jersey on 'shirts off our backs' night. What a jip that would've been.
