Ice hockey | Disappointment for the Lions’ hero in the NHL – Sakari Manninen was sent to the farm

Manninen scored the overtime goal that decided the world championship for Leijon.

To begin with a hockey player who moved to the NHL for a season Sakari Manninen has to start his season on the farm league AHL side.

Manninen’s club Vegas Golden Knights sent Manninen to the ranks of the Henderson Silver Knights, who play at the farm.

The journalist of the sports media Athletic, who follows the team, tells about it Jesse Granger on his Twitter account. So far, the club has not confirmed the information.

Manninen, 30, was one of the most important players of the Finnish team when Leijonat won both the Olympic gold and the world championship.

In the World Cup final played in Tampere, Manninen scored the championship-deciding goal in overtime into Canada’s net. Manninen played in both tournaments as Leijoni’s number one center.

The upcoming season will be Manninen’s first in North America.

Last season, Manninen played in Russia for Salavat Yulaev Ufa in the KHL, but left the country like many other Finns when Russia started a war of aggression against Ukraine.
