“It’s not worth thinking about that. Injured what injured. ”
Lions expects one player from the NHL regular season finishing teams. Paint sprayer Patrik Laine would be interested in Jalo and the team coaching team.
“The wave situation is still a bit open. He has had an injury with him. ”
Jalonen said that Laine would be willing, “but the health situation decides the whole thing.”
“Wouldn’t it be clear in the next few days what his situation is.”
NHL The playoffs will start on the night between Monday and Tuesday, when almost the entire first line of Finnish hockey will slowly reach the playoffs.
“We’re looking at what’s going to happen there. We’ll see a hint of that, when practically no one will come here until our games begin. It shows how sensible it is to wait if the series stretches. ”
“No decisions have been made, but neither has it been ruled out.”
