Wolf Pack’s Wiikman Looking to Stay Steady
Thursday January 08th 2009, 12:57 pm

I’ll admit, the title gave me a little chuckle, given the timing and nature of last night’s game-winning goal in Winnipeg. Regardless, that’s the headline on this week’s AHL “On the Beat” profile of Hartford Wolf Pack goaltender Miika Wiikman at the AHL web site. Wiikman, who’s struggled somewhat with consistency this season, discusses playing in the AHL, fellow goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, his pre-AHL career in Finland and his superstitious pre-game ritual, among other things. His answer to why Finland tends to produce so many good goalies is classic: “Finnish goaltenders are really weird. That could be it.”
