Chicago Wolves may well have another local player in the line up when the season opens in October. Yesterday the Atlanta Thrashers reached terms with La Grange native, Tim Stapleton of the Toronto Maple Leafs . Two things to notice about this addition to the stable, first the 79 points he got last year accompanied by the 26 penalty minutes, not bad. Second his two years with the Jokerit team of Helsinki, one of the finest in Finland. A center that can score, stand up for himself yet stay out of the box, I like that.
Looks like a good move to these eyes, full database on Stapleton below.
