Ramo to Play for Finland

According to the International Ice Hockey Federation, Lightning goaltender Karri Ramo will suit up for the Finns at the upcoming World Championships in Switzerland.

Despite the numbers, Ramo was very good the last half of the year for Tampa Bay filling in for the injured Mike Smith. Ramo started the year in AHL Norfolk and recently graduated from prospect status here at Bolt Prospects.

Ramo, pictured here with Finland's junior team in 2005, will be joined in the Finland nets by Nashville's Pekka Rinne. Ramo played last year for Finland as a back-up.
