Thanks to Puck Daddy for bringing this to our attention

via reader Vesku (from the land of snow and ice), here is Jokerit and HIFK playing in Helsinki's Olympic Stadium for 36,000 people, a record for a hockey game in Scandinavia. Detroit Red Wings prospect Teemu Pulkkinen scored twice for Jokerit and Minnesota Wild prospect Mikael Granlund does the same for HIFK (including the game winner). Former NHL veteran Ville Peltonen scores and adds two assists for HIFK.


Check out the two goals from Granlund. Simply fantastic. Please, please, please get him over here next season.
