Finglish

The Seattle Times has a feature today on Lightning goaltending prospect Riku Helenius:

Quote:
When Helenius gets really animated, he explodes into a steady cadence of Finnish and English. It's a hybrid of discordant syllables, and though no one really understands each word, the meaning is clear.

"There's some form of yelling coming out of his mask, but no one really knows what he's saying," Seattle coach Rob Sumner said.

"It just comes out naturally," Helenius said with a wide smile. "The players can figure out what I'm saying. There might be a couple of bad words, but those are bad words in Finnish, too."

For the remainder of the feature, see the Seattle Times story, T-Birds Goalie is a Force.
