Finnish goalie released for pro-drug comments

Richard Ullberg, goalie of second-tier Mestis side Hermes Kokkola, was released by his team due to violating the club's anti-drug policy. The 22-year old made positive comments about the use of cannabis on his personal social media accounts which made a further work relationship with the club impossible.

Ullberg, who already played in top division Liiga and Austrian-based EBEL earlier in his career, had a great preseason and looked like the top candidate as starting goalie.  After being testes by the club on forbidden substances, the goalie will be able to play for any other team as there were no anomalies found.

KooKoo fires coach too

Sunday was a pretty busy day in Finland regarding coach firing. After HPK from SM-liiga also Mestis club Kookoo fired coach Ismo Lehkonen. Kookoo is currently in the 2nd place in table only 2 points behind league leaders Jukurit and firing was a little bit suprising at least for the people who look at the team from distance. Assistant coach Jarno Kultanen will take care of the coaching for now but KooKoo will inform later about coming trainer decisions.
