Jesse Puljujarvi may start next season on Edmonton's third line.
Edmonton wants to be a more well-rounded team up front next season and coach Dave Tippett believes the additions of Puljujarvi and Kyle Turris will strengthen the team's top-nine group. "You watch him play now and he's a different player," Tippett said of Puljujarvi. "He's a dominant player in the Finnish league right now. His English is good and he's anxious to come over and prove he can be a good player in the best league in the world... I think we'll get a much better player coming in here this time." Edmonton announced the signing of Puljujarvi to a two-year contract on Oct. 7 to bring the 22-year-old forward back to North America. Oct 21 1:33 pm (EST)
