Armia struggles as Aces win

Joel Armia (-1, 2 SOG) failed to record a point for the second straight game Saturday as Assat defeated TPS Turku, 4-1. Finnish hockey officials looking for a consistent level of compete from Armia this season have been disappointed out of the gate. The skilled wing has yet to dig deep enough shift-to-shift, contributing to a cumulative -3 rating while resulting in a decrease of icetime over the first two games from 17:23 on Friday to just 11:05 in Saturday's win.

Armia will look to take corrective action on Tuesday when Assat continues their early season schedule in Lahti against the Pelicans.
