Helenius May Miss Rest of Season

According to Ilves news, "Goaltender Riku Helenius is not yet capable to play. Helenius apparently will not recover this season."

Helenius recovering

I talked yesterday with doctor (M.D) of Team Ilves about Riku Helenius. He said, that Riku´s healing is in schedule. Riku has no-contact "order", but he is practicing at ice. I understand, what doctor said, that Riku is skating, but nothing more. They will evaluate Riku´s permission to play in late February. So Riku might get in action early March. Sadly I know, that Riku will play in Ilves Jr. team rest of the season, because men´s team has already two goalies. We will hope, that Tuukka Rask is heading to Boston next summer and Riku might get a chance to be No. 1 goalie in Team Ilves in next season.
