ESPOO, Finland – The Espoo Blues traded Matti Uusivirta, 23, to Ilves Tampere in return for Sami Sandell.

“It’s a trade that involves two young and promising players, and we believe that both of them have a realistic chance to take more responsibility and a bigger role in their new environments,” says Jukka Holtari, the Blues' director of hockey operations.

Sandell has three points (2+1) in 11 SM-liiga games this season. In other news, forward Stefan Öhman and defenceman Dale Clarke are injured, but listed day-to-day.
