Hovinen Struggles in Phantoms Debut

Highly touted 6-foot-7 goalie Niko Hovinen had a disappointing North American debut Tuesday afternoon as the Adirondack Phantoms dropped a 5-3 decision to Albany in an AHL exhibition opener for both teams. A standing-room-only crowd of 400 crammed into the Skate Zone in Voorhees to watch the game. Hovinen, 24, who starred in Finland last season, allowed three goals in the first 7 minutes, 41 seconds as the Phantoms fell into a 3-0 deficit and couldn’t climb out. They outshot the New Jersey Devils’ farm team, 47-23.
