NHL Free Agency: 10 Freshly Signed European UFAs that Should Make Impact

He won’t wow fans in Vegas at his 5ft 8 height, but given the Golden Knights’ cap issues, there’s a chance Team Manninen will have a legitimate shot at showcasing his high-end offensive zone vision. Manninen thrives on the power play and has had no shortage of big international goals with Finland in recent years. There is real potential here with low risk and high reward.
