RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Petri Kontiola.
Acquired at the trading deadline from the Blackhawks, Kontiola spent much of his season in the AHL. There aren't many reasons to believe he won't spend the bulk of the 2009-10 season there as well.
Kontiola saw action in 12 games with the Hawks last season, and with a strong showing in training camp this year, could find himself ingrained in the team's larger plans. The Hawks love his intelligence and tenacity. They believe he can play on scoring and checking lines, giving him a greater opportunity to see ice time in the near future. He's still getting acclimated to the North American game. 2007-08 was the first season the native Fin spent on this side of the pond.
