Thanks for the link! Just to clarify a point, Juha was originally going to go to Clarkson this year, but thought better of things when they cleared out their coaching staff. Now he's Penn State-bound in 2012.

You guys have a stand-up guy and a great player on your hands - looking forward to following him as a Viper this year!

Thanks for the message and checking out my blog Kyle. I read that he was going to head to Penn State instead of Clarkson. Do you know Luke or friends with him? Can you tell me what kind of a d-man the Vipers are getting?

Thanks VDHF
