We are delighted to welcome new recruit to our roster as team’s playoff push gathers pace in its rookie season. Finnish forward Tomi Sallinen came to help fire our team into the top eight.

Sallinen, 27, joined Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk at the start of the season after a successful season with Sweden’s Djurgardens. But he fell victim to the turmoil at his new club and after playing under three head coaches in four months he left. The Finnish international centre has 17 World Championship appearances for his country, including 10 at last season’s tournament in Russia where the Finns took a silver medal behind Canada. His KHL experience thus far has brought two goals and an assist in 19 appearances for Neftekhimik.
