Liiga

Klaus Zaugg suggested the Finn as a possible target for SC Bern or the SCL Tigers, but he also draws a lot of interest from elsewhere.

Where will Jesse Puljujärvi play this fall?

Jesse Puljujärvi, Edmonton's fourth overall pick from 2016, has not yet decided on where he will play next season. As his agent Markus Lehto tells YLE, Finland's public broadcaster, a return to the NHL is possible. Puljujärvi and Edmonton have picked up talks again. Because he still is a restricted free agent, the Oilers hold his rights.

As the NHL will only start in December, there are also other options for the 22-year-old before that. "We have received good offers from various clubs," his agent tells YLE, explicitly mentioning the KHL and Puljujärvi's current club Kärpät Oulu as options. There is, however, no word if Switzerland - and with that SC Bern or the SCL Tigers, as suggested by Zaugg - are actually in the mix.
