Kelowna Rockets President/General Manager, Bruce Hamilton made a statement regarding reports from a Finnish based scouting service that Lassi Thomson will return to his hometown team in Finland.

“We’re aware of the report that was released today,” said Hamilton. “We were somewhat surprised; however, Lassi has always been under contract to Ilves as they had to release him to play for us this past season. We look forward to the NHL Draft this upcoming June. We are hopeful that whichever NHL team drafts him and his club team Ilves decides that playing for the Rockets is in his best interest.”
