Canucks scout in Finland

So, I spoke to Canucks Swedish-based scout Inge Hammarstrom yesterday. I was working on my Anton Rodin article, and Hammarstrom gets to watch Rodin play on a regular basis in Sweden so that’s what we talked about. However, Hammarstrom also told me he was in Finland scouting a tournament of 1992 born players. What’s also happening in Finland right now? The Karjala Cup, in which Peter Forsberg is playing. I’m not saying Hammarstrom is also scouting Forsberg, but I’m just saying.

Team 1040 Canucks color commentator Tom Larscheid said tonight that Mike Gillis is “extremely interested” in acquiring Forsberg.

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds.
