“Building the team with a relatively fast pace was a challenge, but with the lead of our team captain Roope “Ruape” Kurkela, we were able to obtain four of the core players relatively fast. We took our time with the last member and found our team’s youngest player Toni “Effix” Hurme, who is certainly going to turn some heads in the coming months. The “Original Six” is everything we could expect from a top tier team and I am really looking forward to our cooperation for the upcoming future”, says Christer Kasurinen, team manager of Helsinki REDS.
