Tukonen comes back to North America

News: The Lightning signed forward Lauri Tukonen to a contract Thursday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Analysis: Tukonen returns to North America after playing the 2008-09 season overseas. Tukonen played in 21 games with Ilves Tampere and 14 games with Lukko Rauma of the Finnish Elite League last season. He accumulated eight goals and 21 points despite having his season shortened due to injury. Tukonen was acquired by the Lightning from the Stars last season. He was drafted by Los Angeles in the first round (11th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. However, he has clearly been a bust to this point. Tukonen is merely organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.

Lightning acquire forward Tukonen

News: The Dallas Stars acquired defenseman Andrew Hutchinson from the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday, trading away the rights to winger Lauri Tukonen, who plays in Europe.
Analysis: Tukonen plays for Lukko Rauma in the Finnish Elite League. He has five goals and eight assists in 22 games. The former 2004 first-round pick has been traded a few times since the offseason and has played in just five NHL games. He might stay in Europe this season, so continue to keep him off Fantasy rosters until further notice.

Tukonen flees for Finnish team

News: RW Lauri Tukonen signed a contract with Ilves Tampere-SM-Liiga (Finland). Tukonen was traded from Los Angeles to Dallas in late July.
Analysis: Tukonen was Los Angeles' first-round selection, No. 11 overall, in the 2004 draft. He has skated in five career NHL games with the Kings. Tukonen, 21, spent last season with Manchester of the AHL and had nine goals and 26 assists in 62 games. He also played in one game with the Kings. There was a chance he would start the season out in the AHL again, so it appears as though Tukonen opted to take his games overseas. It's safe to ignore him in Fantasy.

Stars trade for former first-rounder

News: The Dallas Stars acquired right wing Lauri Tukonen from the Los Angeles Kings for left wing Richard Clune on Monday.
Analysis: Tukonen was Los Angeles' first-round selection, No. 11 overall, in the 2004 draft. He has skated in five career NHL games with the Kings. Tukonen, 21, spent last season with Manchester of the AHL and had nine goals and 26 assists in 62 games. He also played in one game with the Kings. Tukonen might see increased time with the Stars in 2008-09, but is not yet a recommended Fantasy option.

Tukonen plays 16 shifts Monday

News: The Sports Xchange reports Kings RW Lauri Tukonen was recalled Monday from Manchester of the American Hockey League and played on the fourth line against the Coyotes. Tukonen did not record a point, took 16 shifts and attempted one shot on goal.
Analysis: Tukonen is a player worth keeping an eye on in long-term keeper Fantasy leagues, but he is not worth owning in most weekly formats at this time. He will likely be back in the minors as soon as a roster spot is needed.

Tukonen makes NHL debut

News: Lauri Tukonen, the Kings' first-round draft pick in 2004, made his NHL debut Thursday and started at RW on a line with C Anze Kopitar and LW Dustin Brown. A spot opened up on the roster for Tukonen when Raitis Ivanans was placed on injured reserve because of an infected cut on his right arm.
Analysis: Tukonen is a player worth keeping an eye on in long-term keeper Fantasy leagues, but he is not worth owning in most weekly formats at this time.

Tukonen recalled from minors

News: Lauri Tukonen was recalled from Manchester of the AHL on Thursday and he made his NHL debut against the Canucks. He was scoreless with a minus-1 rating in 6:59 of ice time.
Analysis: Tukonen is a player worth keeping an eye on in long-term keeper Fantasy leagues, but he is not worth owning in most weekly formats at this time.

LaBarbera, Tukonen join Monarchs

News: The Los Angeles Kings assigned G Jason LaBarbera and RW Lauri Tukonen to Manchester of the AHL on Tuesday.
Analysis: While LaBarbera is not worth any Fantasy consideration at this point, Tukonen is a solid option in long-term keeper formats.
