leevi aaltonen

Two Rangers prospects were in action over the weekend, with Leevi Aaltonen and Kalle Vaisanen continuing their seasons in Liiga. Aaltonen is expected to get more minutes this season, and he’s been averaging 14 minutes per night so far, more than last year. Vaisanen is going to continue to be in and out of TPS’ lineup as a 19 year old.

As a reminder, these posts recap the games from the day before, not the day of.
