Pajuniemi spent the last two seasons playing in Finland for TPS Turku of SM-liiga, where he scored 48 goals and 78 points over 97 total games. It is unclear whether the 21 year old right handed shooting winger will come over the AHL or stay in Europe for next season or if he will come directly to the big club on Broadway.
