He looked good with the Jets, he’s looked good with the Moose but today the Jets organization has announced that 2019 1st round pick Ville Heinola is heading back to Finland to play for Lukko Rauma.
His 2019 looks like this:
Jets: 8GP 1G 4A
Moose: 3GP 0G 1A
He will now head back to play (and the Jets hope dominate) in Liiga, play world juniors for Team Finland and be ready to return next season even more developed and ready. However his showing to date puts him ahead of the curve I would suspect that the Jets had for him coming into training camp.
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
