suomikiekko.com: Has an interview with prospect Ville Pokka where it's written he's under contract in Europe for 2014-15
Pokalla has a contract with Kärpät again next year . He is the New York Islanders second -round pick , but did not yet followed last fall training camp.
In the near future in terms of everything is open . Kärpissä would certainly be on a big role in a responsible and Marjamäen coaching would be a good place to develop.
On the other hand the Islanders organization could also be a place to open. He is the head team would not necessarily be delicious to play, but there could develop relatively under pressure.
What are you doing in the near future ? Can you say that you're playing Kärpissä for next season ?
- I do not know how to say it. Played first this season to the end and see what's going on and what do I do next season. It is time to think about summer.
Will you go in the summer or autumn of Islanders , for example, to the camp ?
- I'm not even thinking about it. They have given me peace , and we'll talk more after the season .
Regardless of where Pokka plays he must sign an NHL contract by 5/31 or New York loses his NHL rights. European(not Russia)/Canadian league prospects must be signed two years after being drafted.
Obviously the depth chart for defenders signed is packed for New York, and Bridgeport.
