    Default Vesalainen declines WJC invitation

    Vesalainen has declined invitation to join Team Finland for the World Juniors. Team Finland’s head coach confirmed it was player’s decision to focus on his season with Jokerit in the KHL instead of travelling to Canada for the tournament.

    Interesting. Some kids use this tourney as a way to boost their stock (or sometimes hurt it depending on their performance) so he must be comfortable in the K. Big loss for FIN.

    Huge loss for sure. Hopefully the Predators release Tolvanen now. They can survive without one of the two but not having either one would be devastating.

    I have also updated my projected lines for Team Finland >> https://dobberprospects.com/prospect...d-for-the-wjc/

    KVes definitely marches to his own beat. He is having early success with Jokerit so I guess he doesn't want to lose any momentum with that. Too bad for Finland, I would have bet on him being one of the top scorers in the tournament.
