Finnish Liiga team Ilves announced today that they have signed Antti Tyrväinen to a one-year contract. Last season Tyrväinen played for Jokerit, the Finnish team that will move into the KHL next season.
Tyrväinen played for the OKC Barons in 2011-12 and 2012-13, and was signed to a two-way contract with the Edmonton Oilers. In the summer of 2013 the Edmonton Oilers gave Tyrväinen a Qualifying Offer, but he chose to play in Finland with Jokerit.
All the best, Antti!
