This week’s Hawt Trophy is going to a player that we’re sad to see heading off to Europe. Sami Lepisto most recently played for the Chicago Blackhawks during the 2011-12 season. He announced on his Twitter that he’s headed to play for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl in the coming year. While we’re sad to see him go, we can’t help but be proud that he is going to play a part in rebuilding Lokomotiv.
Sami was recently featured in Cosmo Finland. For which we have to say thank you to that publication.
He is extremely active on Twitter, always sharing action shots from his adventures wherever he may be. Not really sure what was happening here, but the view is lovely.
He does cut a dashing figure, eh?
Bon voyage, Sami! We wish you the best in Russia but will definitely miss you here in North America.
