Thank you.

Iiro Tarkki, who spent the 2011-2012 season with the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL, has signed with  Salavat Yulaev Ufa of the KHL.

On May 6, 2011, Tarkki signed a one-year entry-level contract with the Anaheim Ducks.

Tarkki made his NHL debut for the Ducks on January 8, 2012, against the Columbus Blue Jackets, after primary goaltender Jonas Hiller was injured late in the first period. He led the Ducks to a 7–4 victory and racked up his first career NHL win.

Iiro is the younger brother of goaltender Tuomas Tarkki.

Tarkki uses his big frame well to challenge shooters and cut down angles. He picks his spots well in going into his butterfly, and is fairly quick getting back up.

Meanwhile, finnish goalie Joni Ortio will play for IFK Helsinki of the Sm-liiga on loan from the Calgary Flames.

Ortio has good reflexes, rebound control and quick lateral movement while playing with great composure and poise under pressure. The young netminder can at times show flashes of brilliance and has the mental strength to excel on breakaways or shootouts. He will have to continue improving his overall strength while adjusting to the North American style of play at the professional level and learn to play a more aggressive style against the shooter.

Leland Irving

 The Good: Irving has a calm demeanor along with a quiet goaltending style that lets the shot hit him while not overplaying the shooters which are all qualities needed to be a NHL netminder. The thin goalie does not fill the net with his frame so he needs to play more at the top of his crease and be more aggressive with his stick when challenging the shooters. Irving is considered a quiet goaltender because he lets the shot hit him, and doesn’t overplay shooters. There is nothing flashy about his game, but he owns the calm demeanor scouts look for in starting netminders. Irving is the future of the Calgary Flames franchise in goal, and has proved that in his limited NHL experience so far. (more…)

Henrik Karlsson

The Good: Henrik Karlsson has tremendous size and a very solid, complete set of Swedish butterfly skills. He has great situational awareness and excellent patience, giving him a calm and composed demeanor. His combination of size and mobility allows him to employ an effective hybrid style. He can make saves by blocking the puck with his strong positioning, but he has the reflexes and agility to make the reactionary, desperate save as well. One of his most noticeable strengths will be his ability to fill the net in an efficient, effortless and imposing manner. He is a big dude with an assertive attitude. He not easily rattled and he demands a lot of space in the crease, and can use his size to move players out of the way. Cheap backup ($850K). (more…)
