Eetu came on, Simon Krekula had to leave the fray. The contract lasted until November 15. Now Simon will soon be back in full training.

Eetu has been a good injection during his time with us. We thank him for this time and wish him good luck in the future.

Effectively, Tuulola replaced injured forward Simon Krekula. With Krekula almost back, Tuulola’s spot is basically gone.

In 11 games, Tuulola had two goals and two assists with Vasterviks. It’s unclear if the Flames and Tuulola’s camp will be setting up a new loan arrangement for him with a different European club. He had 10 goals and 23 points last season for Stockton in his first tour of duty in North American pro hockey.
