    I know it's a very long shot... but still...

    Here is a photo, most likely posted in 1974 or so. It seems to be taken at a game between Finland and USSR. The Finnish players are wearing numbers 22 and 15, while the Soviet has number 19. The Finnish uniform suggests early '70s... but I can't find any Finnish skater with number 22... the latest one is Harri Linnonmaa at World Championship 1970, but the Finns had a slightly different uniform then... Can't find anything at any Izvestia Trophy tournaments, either... So it's probably some international friendly game...

    Would it be possible to identify the player wearing 22 (Linnonmaa or not) just by looking at the pic? And maybe give me a hint as to what game it was?

    Again, it's a long shot, but thank you very much in advance!

    Thank you, but at Canada Cup 1976, Finnish uniforms included names written on the back.
