Smith scored scored today vs Slovakia
Boqvist tied for 5th in league for scoring
Tied for 8th it seems with 20 points in 26 games.
Bernard traded to Charlottetown.
According to main board Finnish WJC roster thread it appears that Talvite wore the C for Finland in the exhibition game against CAN last night. Pretty nice honor for him. He may never make it to NJ but he has certainly defied the odds so far and is developing better than most similarly drafted players.
Talvitie is listed as their captain on eliteprospects.
If Seney can make it I don't see why Talvite can't.
I think he will make it.
Seney is a faster skater but The Finn has better hands
Believe he wore the C at the U-18's as well.
He's definitely one of the more intriguing prospects that's for sure. Not as interesting as Ryan Rehill or Conor Chatham but I digress.
Pretty sure he's been a captain at the international level before, so he definitely is well-respected by his coaches/teammates. I'm excited to see what he can do this tournament. He's done well so far in his freshman year, this is a good test to see where he's at among his other peers.
Aarne Talvitie has been named captain of Finlands WJC team

The Fab also an assistant captain for Sweden
Sorry. Pet peeve
Pretty pumped to see Talvitie finally. Has played middle 6, PP2 and PK1 as far as I know.
I'm not too much into WJC as far as rooting goes, but more to see prospects (especially Devils) in action. Glad that theres finally a Finn on Devils prospect pool.
Assistant to the captain.
Who do we have in the wjc
I think that's it.
Schmidt for Switzerland.
During the WJSS Talvite was a pretty dominant PK forward. You could see he played that spot with lots of confidence. He’s never looked out of place in either of the past two summer showcases against top competition. He’s had time to adjust to the North American rink and played against mostly older NCAA competition. Wouldn’t surprise me if he played well in the tournament.
If we're lucky, he turns into the next Coleman.
Assist to Boqvist and a missed penaltyshot
Max Veronneau from Princeton who we had at camp is having another very good year. Through 14 games he has 5 goals and 15 assists. Would love if we were able to give him a deal and see how he progresses even if it's just at the AHL level.
