With the acquisition of Saku Mäenalanen, the SCL Tigers now have seven imports under contract. However, one of them, Anthony Louis, will be sidelined for a month with a lower-body injury. In the Emmental, the 29-year-old will play alongside four fellow countrymen.
Mäenalanen is an Olympic gold, World Championship, and World Juniors winner, as well as a three-time champion in the Liiga with Kärpät. Last season, Mäenalanen suited up in 69 games for the Winnipeg Jets, collecting eleven points.
