Jannik Hansen is the latest Dane, who has found a Finnish club during the NHL lockout.
The Finnish ice hockey league has become a favorite place for Danish players during the NHL lockout, and Tuesday was another player the way to the country.

Sports Director Mikko Leinonen has high hopes for his new play.

- He has a good work ethic and can score, he is good at creating space around him, and so he has skills as a playmaker. I am sure that he will be a key player on our team, says sports director.

Jannik Hansen has recently trained with at Rødovre Mighty Bulls, but he encounters now for several of his Danish colleagues who usually play in the NHL.

Monday was Lars Or presented at JYP Jyvaskyla.

Frans Nielsen, Philip Larsen and Mikkel Bødker occurs all the Lukko Rauma.

We'll see more and more of this as players want to play, but also have game situations to prepare themselves in case a deal is reached. There would only be a week or so of warm up once a new CBA is in place so its not a lot of time to get in the swing of things for what could be important games in a shortened season.

I wouldn't have liked this back when that proposal was 1st made, but it's apparent that NHL hockey's gone this season. Now I just want my boys to play, so good for you Jannik.

Mad respect for the Honey Badger. It's just insurance and nothing else, that's a guy who just wants to play some hockey. Where are the owners' supporters now? So much for greed.

Hmm, according to Tappara's player page for Hansen (http://www.tappara.f...a&pelaajaid=109), he's at 185cm (6'1) and 92kg (203lbs). That's about 8 more pounds than he was last year, I wonder how the added muscle will affect his play.

Make that a goal and two assists for Hansen in his debut.

This actually just makes me depressed. Hansen is just entering his prime and is an awesome third liner. Now we might miss out on an entire season of him in his prime, not to mention an entire season of a cheap contract.

My personal opinion is that Hansen should get a look on the second line come next NHL game, let Kassian try a spot on the 3rd to start the season

This will do Hansen a world of good. He's gone from 3rd line checker and PKer to Tappara's sniper and star. A whole season in this new role will refine his game quite well if he can add a scoring element to his already-great defensive style.

I'd love to see guys like Malhotra and Lapierre follow suite. With Weise and Hansen working on their offensive game a lot more, our bottom-6 adds a new aspect it desperately needed last year and that's scoring skill.

Also wouldn't mind seeing Ballard go boost his confidence with a season somewhere else putting up big numbers.

Good for Hansen! Glad to see him playing, hope the others start doing this too, particularly the bottom 6 guys like Lappy. Show 'em what you're made of.

4 Points, in 2 Games and a +1. Seems like the Honey Badger is doing a pretty good job.
