He would be sent down to the U20 team for two games, one in which he scored six points.
Aatu Jämsen had an excellent Liiga debut yesterday, recording one goal and one assist and displaying his offensive skills throughout the game. Impressive performance that he can use to build on. @LAKings @Hockey_Royalty #LAKings #PelicansFi
