Just the tip of the goalie news iceberg

Land(s) of the midnight sun get an early start

Hockey is underway already in Finland and Sweden, with the newly organized "Nordic Trophy" tournament. This tournament was initiated by 8 elite professional clubs ostensibly to drum up interest in pre-season hockey and/or bring the two countries' top leagues closer with a little friendly competition. The teams involved are:

Finland
HIFK
Kärpät Oulu
TPS Turku
Tappara

Sweden
Djurgårdens IF
Frölunda HC
Färjestads BK
Linköpings HC

Today's games featured Tappara vs Djurgårdens and Kärpät vs Färjestads. Much to Swedish hockey fans' chagrin, both Finnish clubs won. (With scores of 6-1 and 4-1, respectively).
