Tammela Looks to Get Head Start With Crunch


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Jonne Tammela stepped onto the ice for the first time in Syracuse Monday morning.

The Finnish forward, who arrived Saturday after signing an amateur tryout to finish this season with the Crunch, went through skating drills with a handful of teammates during the split practice at the Onondaga County War Memorial.

Tammela is hoping his stint in Syracuse gives him a head start in transitioning to the North American game next fall.

“I hope I can learn more about the system we play and more about North American hockey,” Tammela said. “It’s quite different in Europe, so it will be helpful for me.”
