Mikael Granlund: anatomy of the air-scoop master

Mikael Granlund: anatomy of the air-scoop master | Finland | Scoop.it
Helsingin Sanomat looks into where the prodigiously talented teenager and World Champion has learned his hockey tricks.

Mikko Koivu "hints" to Mikael Granlund to join Wild next season; Talking ... - Minneapolis Star Tribune (blog)

I suggest you watch the interview yourself here, if for no other reason than to see the dent that the partying Finns have already put on the trophy less than 24 hours after having it. The dent can be seen clearly at six seconds. The Granlund stuff begins at 1:06. The first part of the interview is apparently about some claims that the Finns said mean stuff to the Swedes after beating them.
In full disclosure, I don't speak Finnish. I called upon my friend, Finnish sportswriter, Juha Hiitela (Veikkaaja sports magazine), to translate for me once I found out about Koivu's comments of hinting toward Granlund to come now. Juha is a must follow on Twitter at www.twitter.com/jhiitela.
