Default Signing of Antti Holli

I see we have signed another import (presumably as cover for Lopuski - the news story link on twitter isn't connecting to anything as yet). His stats don't look all that great but as we know it's very difficult to compare - Seems to have played a lot of his recent hockey in Denmark. Does anyone know what the standard of the Danish league is like in comparison to the UK?

Finland 🇫🇮 are a world renowned hockey nation he'll be good. For me I will stick to the, it's not what you bring it's what you leave behind for this; Lightnings Legacy year. Good luck and welcome Antti you have what it takes, but it will take all you got!

Hope this signing has been made within budget for the current season and hasn't been made because people have been begging for a replacement for Lupolski.

Doubt whoever signs the cheques is paying attention to what we're saying on a message-board!

I think it's more likely they've heard that Lopuski will be out for the foreseeable future/might not be able to make the playoffs (just me speculating) and have 'pulled the trigger' on signing this new guy?

Either that or he's just become available, or else we've been scouting him for the past 6 weeks or so...

Welcome to MK, Antti.

His stats are here - http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=9714

It will be interesting to see how he gets on. Our Scandinavian imports have been a bit hit (Kalgoum, Smulter) and miss (Tikinen, Luomala, Tahtinen).

I'm looking forward to seeing him action.

Scored some ok numbers at a much higher level, can see him staying on next season if he does a job.

Think I might have to pop down and have a watch Sunday.

Hope with 5 years more experience he has got even better.
Would guess that the injury to Mikolaj is taking time to heal and the availability of Antti was too good a chance to miss, going to have to hit ground running

Always exciting to see a new import in Lightning colours, can't wait to see him in action. I take it Holli is pronounced like holly, think they wanted a festive signing.

I'm guessing that whoever sponsors his shirt will be known as a Holli Buddy!!!
Sorry.
