We’re very pleased to introduce you to Risto Pakarinen, who has graciously agreed to contribute a regular column to KK this coming season, a weekly feature covering European players, both outside and inside the NHL.
Many of you are probably already familiar with Risto’s work, but for those who aren’t, we asked him to tell readers a few quick things about himself…
I’m a Finnish freelance writer, based in Stockholm, Sweden. That’s right, I’m deep behind the enemy lines.
I’m also a regular contributor to IIHF.com, NHL.com, The Hockey News, and several publications in Finland and Sweden. I’ve also covered four World Championships and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics for the IIHF.
And since I foolishly hoisted the Stanley Cup in my twenties, I wake up every morning knowing I will never be able to win it.
Risto’s posts will start in September.
I had the chance to speak with Risto Pakarinen, a fellow NHL.com blogger and freelance writer.
We discussed hockey of course, and the view of the NHL from the European standpoint as well as a few other topics.
Risto has released a fine little book, Off The Post, which can be purchased here.
