TPS Turku Defenders
Kimmo Peltonen ( 9g 1+1=2)
Former HPK Hämeenlinna captain plays now his second season in TPS. Is one if the top defenders.
Jussi Timonen ( 12g 0+0=0)
Young promising defender who played very well at the youth championships at last season. His big brother is Nashville Predators (also) defender Kimmo Timonen.
Marko Kauppinen (13g 0+1=1)
Skillfull defender but he suffers lack of fysical power.
Simon Backman ( 4g 0+0=0)
Is one of the yougsters
Markus Seikola ( 9g 0+1=1)
Young defender with good shots and accurate passes.
David Schneider (13g 1+0=1)
Fast and reliable north-american. Only negative thing is his small size.
Markus Tuomaala ( 0g)
I have to say that I don't know anything about him.
Markku Paukkunen ( 13g 0+1=1)
Fourth or fifth defender.
Jiri Vykoukal (11g 2+5=7)
Two times world champion (96,99) is maybe one of the best defenders in finnish SM-League. Fast and accurate shot and exellent passes. Unfortunately he gets quite easily injured.
Antti Hulkkonen ( 13g 1+6=7)
Played last season in SaiPa Lappeenranta and he was maybe one of the biggest positive suprise. Played also few finnish national team matches. Good sign for TPS.
