Today he scored a hat trick against Czech Republic! All of his goals were power play goals (holy slappers, I believe). Finland won 5-2. :thumbup:


Indeed he did, for those interested here's a link to an article with (crap quality but what can you do) video of all of Finland's goals.

Scored his 9th goal of the season today, with holy slapper of course. He also used slapper in a shootout attempt but goalie saved it.

His goal @ 1:40

He looked quite good against Canada even despite the 8-1 loss. Didn't see him against US.

He's been getting lots of chances though, working hard, the points will come.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

I can't wait until he joins the Wings. His slapper is monster.

He's not had a great season so far and was just demoted to the Jokerit junior team for the playoffs. His FEL team hasn't really performed up to par either but this season has been a definite setback in Pulkkinen's development.

I thought he was demoted because of injuries?

He wasn't demoted due to poor performance, he was second on the team in points... the whole team had problems producing.

No injury, there's just no role for him on the first team right now. He also wouldn't be playing in the junior finals if he wasn't fit. Kind of a mystery altogether...

"DETROIT – The Red Wings have signed Teemu Pulkkinen, an offensive, playmaking forward, to a three-year entry-level contract on Tuesday. -- Pulkkinen will join the Griffins in the American Hockey League next season."

Awesome news!

Edit. He will play in Finland next season.

He's a shooter, kind of unique for a European because Europeans are always known for over-passing,'' Red Wings assistant general manager Jim Nill said. "You don't like to make comparisons, but his game is a lot like Brett Hull's. He's got a quick release, he's pure goal-scorer.''

Good article about Pulu at the Wings prospect camp, it sounds like he has the right attitude.

About Pulkkinen at camp:



And Jeebus Monkey, can this man play. He made other players look downright silly at times, folks, silly with silly hats and silly walks and silly shoes silly. He plucked the puck away from his opponents, he ripped monster one-timers at the net, he made gorgeous plays, he slithered sniping shots, wicked wristers, top-shelf blasts and seeing-eye passes to teammates and he did it all while still showing a wonderful grasp of the subtleties of playing a sound defensive game, too. He didn’t cut any corners while making his opponents look like they weren’t on the same planet.


Wow.


Wow.




The prospect tournament will be a better barometer as to how “close” these guys are, but obviously people like Pulkkinen and Smith stand out, and in my opinion, there’s no overhyping of Pulkkinen—he’s just that good, and it’s fun to talk about a prospect with so much high-end potential.

Seems he's really turning heads, and impressing everyone. Also like his commitment to defense.

I notice Pulu only has 5 points through 18 games, is this due to poor play or reduced ice time due to influx of NHLers into the Finnish league and reduced ice time?
