General Manager Doug Gilmour is please to announce that the Frontenacs have selected left winger Henri Ikonen from the KalPa U20 in Finland. Ikonen was part of Finland’s U18 team that finished fourth at the World Junior U18 Championship this past April in the Czech Republic.
Ikonen is a 6’0”, 198 pound left winger that will join the club in August for training camp. He was the second leading scorer for KalPa’s U20 squad, scoring 17 goals and adding 28 assists for 45 points in 37 games along with 18 minutes in penalties and a +12 rating. In nine playoff games, Ikonen had eight goals and six assists for 14 points with a +5 rating.
Ikonen had two goals and was +3 with four penalty minutes in seven games at the U18 WJC for fourth-place Finland.
“Again, we feel that we have added another piece to our puzzle going forward this year,” said GM Doug Gilmour.
