Whale sign goalie Meeri Räisänen



The Connecticut Whale went out and signed Finnish goalie Meeri Räisänen. This is a late signing in the off-season; merely days before the regular season is supposed to start. The Whale used it to solidify their goaltending. Räisänen, is a two time SM-sarja Champion and is a three time winner of the Tuula Puputti Award, which is the Finnish award for best goaltender. She is also a bronze medalist in the Women’s World Championships and a bronze medalist in the Olympics.




She will be competing for the starting goalie position in the Whale against Russian National Team goaltender Maria Sorokina and Annapolis, MD native Sam Walther.
