LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- With five games in seven days, Finland coach Karri Kivi is approaching this week's National Junior Evaluation Camp like a mini-tournament.
"It's like a tournament," Kivi told NHL.com. "I'd like to see how they handle it."
They started off nicely Sunday with a 6-5 overtime win against USA Blue.
Kivi, who coached Assat to the SM-liiga championship last season, said he didn't follow Finland at the 2013 World Junior Championship, when the team finished a disappointing seventh. Because of that, he said what happened in the past is done and it's time to move on.
