In the EJ today Jim Matheson mentioned a Finnish goaltender: Jussi Rynnas. He’s 6.05 and 205, and Matty says the Oilers have interest in him. He’s playing for his town team in the SM-Liiga and sported a .929 SP this season (#1 in the league). The Oilers aren’t the only team in need of goaltending, and there are certainly other teams scouting him.
It is encouraging to know the club is looking to address weakness, and one hopes this goalie is both worth the price he’ll cost and that he’ll continue a long tradition of quality Finns landing in Edmonton.
