Devils Announce Late Season Signing

The Cardiff Devils have signed forward Markku Tahtinen for the remainder of the season. Tahtinen joins the Devils from Beibarys Atyrau in Kazakstan.  Prior to this season, the 36 year old Finn played two seasons in ESV Kaufbeuren where in 2012-13 he played alongside current Devil Carl Hudson. That same year Tahtinen led the team in scoring with 7 goals and 36 assists for 43 points in 45 games. Last season, he had 11 goals and 37 assists for 48 points in 49 games. The talented forward plays all three forward positions and is expected to play on Friday Night when the Devils travel to Belfast to face the Giants before returning to Cardiff on Sunday to host the Sheffield Steelers.  

Player Coach Andrew Lord sat down to explain the signing, why he decided on Tahtinen and how he expects him to fit into the lineup.
