Another Record in Sight...



Janne is 6 points away from breaking the record for most points by a Finnish born player in the AHL...

Currently the record holder, Kai Suikkanen who played with the Rochester Americans in the 82-83 season holds the record with 77 points. Trailing behind Janne, is Valtteri Filppula (currently with detroit) with 71 points (only 20 goals) in 05-06 for the Grand Rapid Griffins in 3rd and with 70 points in 05-06 with the Hartford Wolfpack...

Of those three names the only one with any success in the NHL was Valtteri Filppula... Hopefully janne will follow his path...
