Traverse City Tournament Opens Today
3 days ago
From a Preds roster standpoint, today's signing of Anders Lindback probably doesn't change any plans for the NHL roster as Lindback will likely open the season in the AHL.
Lajunen, 19 (6/16/90), spent his first full season in the Finnish Elite League with Espoo in 2009-10, tying for the team lead in plus/minus rating (+4) and posting 15 points (5g-9a) in 46 games. The 6-1, 184-pound two-way center also participated in his second consecutive World Junior Championship tournament in 2010, tying for third on Team Finland in points (1g-5a-6pts) and tying for second on the team in assists.
The Helsinki native was Nashville's sixth choice, 201st overall (seventh round), in 2008 Entry Draft.
