Around the Farm: Tarmo Reunanen plays 27 minutes in win

Tarmo Reunanen got a whopping 26:54 in ice time yesteday in HPK’s win. This was far and away the most ice time on the team, and Reunanen continues to be leaned on as the team’s top defenseman. Reunanen was one of three prospects in action yesterday, with both Vitali Kravtsov and Lauri Pajuniemi also receiving 20+ minutes of ice time.

Worth noting that Leevi Aaltonen and Adam Huska were healthy scratches in their games. Huska has only played one game this season.

Just a reminder, these are for yesterday’s (11/18) games. I am running these the day after the games now. This is to help prep for the west coast games that will begin soon. Those won’t end until well after my bed time.

  • Liiga app has Reunanen at 25:23 TOI, but minutes inflated due to OT. His partner played 1:10 more. He took 9 shots, 5 of which were not on goal. 1st pair minutes and doing nothing with it.

    • Playing 25+ minutes in Liiga and ending the game +1 is not I’d call “doing nothing”. But yeah you hate this kid so could we expect anything else really?

      • The 1st game where they let him “do his thing” and he missed the net more than half the time, had another shot blocked. Dude is an emergency callup for Liiga.

        • Also, I don’t hate players, I watch their play and comment on their lack of ability or skill to perform at a NHL level.

          • How arrogant this last one comment sounds really. Mate some of your comments and reactions are sometimes interesting and insightful. But you often sound like a petulant know-it-all brat with disrespectful and definitive views about players. Especially when it comes to kids. And Reunanen gets the special treatment every single f”’ time. You know it’s already a boring broken record. Your comment like “his top pair partner logged 1:10 more”. And so ? Who gives a f…? Doesn’t change the fact Reunanen played 27 top pair minutes in a grown men league. And a good one at that. Soon he’ll get 3 points and you’ll say “yeah but one of his teammates got 4”. Give this kid a break, save your energy for something else and spare us. And for the record I have no specific view on Reunanen. He is what he is : a prospect with so much work ahead to try and have a crack at the NHL. A long shot who seems to progress regularly. But boy now I just hope he does eventually reach the NHL and shut the mouths of armchair scouts like you.

          • If you think Liiga is a good league, you’re as daft as a brush.

            Rangers sent him back after signing him, he regressed on his own team, got let go, had to sign on to a beer league team(and produced) and now is getting fed minutes like Homer Simpson gets fed donuts by the devil and does nothing with it, but you can’t read the writing on the wall.

            Meanwhile, until this year I’ve seen him live 3 years running, saw him on video this year as well.

            You haven’t showed you *have* an opinion, let alone an informed one, mate.

  • Why Traktor is not playing Kravtsov not playing with Hyka & Sedlak is a bit of a head scratcher. They had chemistry, so they split them up and now none of the 3 players are producing.
