Smart. Was hoping the Oil would bring him in as a tweener option. Not many offensive guys from the 6-9D slots in Edmonton who can add much offense (Russell, Koekkoek, Lagesson, Berglund). Niki has that side of his game.
Honestly didn't think another NHL team would pick him up. Sounds like he had character issues with Winnipeg, next thing you know his contract gets terminated and he gets picked up by the guy who drafted Logan Mailloux, go figure
Whatever the case though, I see this guy being on his way out of the league and back to Finland sooner rather than later, he's never going to be anything more than a depth defenseman
