Oilers assign Hartikainen to AHL, sign Tuohimaa from Finnish Elite League

EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers assigned left-winger Teemu Hartikainen to their American Hockey League affiliate on Thursday and signed goaltender Frans Tuohimaa to a two-year entry-level contract.

Hartikainen had a goal and two assists in 23 games with the Oilers. He also had 14 goals and 23 assists in 47 games with the Oklahoma City Barons this season.

Tuohimaa has played 32 games over the last two seasons with Jokerit in the Finnish Elite League.

He appeared in 13 games this past season and posted a 2.29 goals-against average and .912 save percentage. In two playoff games, he had a .960 save percentage and 0.77 GAA.

The Oilers selected Tuohimaa in the seventh round (No. 182 overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
