The Injury occurred at the with 3:31 left in the second session and didn’t return. At the start of today’s matchup against Team Sweden, Vaakanainen remains out of the lineup. At most this could be precaution with his injury in the middle of the offseason and time to rest before rookie camp happens in September. In three games in the Summer Showcase, he has zero points with five shots on goal.
