OK, it’s official now. The Thrashers may have re-signed defenseman Anssi Salmela. Just got the word.
Still working on getting the details but it’s a multi-year deal.
Spoke to Don Waddell briefly about him. Obviously, they like him a lot. I know a lot of you folks were eager to hear that the Thrashers were going to re-sign him.
He’s young and big with upside. Waddell said will be part of the seven-defenseman unit. Looks like he won’t start the season in the AHL.
The complete story should be posted soon, but I wanted you guys to know as soon as I did.
