Niko Hovinen: Giant in Goal

The Flyers’ top farm team, the Adirondack Phantoms, will have numerous great storylines this season. Perhaps none is more interesting than the development of goalie Niko Hovinen, a native of Helsinki, Finland. No goaltender in the AHL will be taller than the 6-foot-7 Hovinen, who is coming off a superb season in Finland (2.26 goals-against average, .920 save percentage) and will be playing his first pro season in North America.
