Titan Take Over?



Jake Wylde, James Faraday and Don Draper celebrate a goal in a recent game.


The Helsinki Titans came into the S41 season hungry for a championship and with some new faces in the line up things are looking good. The Titans are off to an 8-5-1 start and are sitting in 2nd place just 3 points behind rival Riga Reign, who they beat 5-2 in their one match up so far this season. Some would say it's only a matter of time before the Titans take over 1st place in the European Conference. With a +15 goal differential, Helsinki has proven they have what it takes to put wins on the board. Experts believe we're just starting to see the beginning of something special brewing in Titan town.


The Titans are getting scoring from everywhere with no player having less than 7 points on the season. Naomi Young currently leads the team with 9 goals and 8 assists for 17 points and is looking as advertised after she came to the team in the off-season. Willem Janssen and James Faraday are also off to nice starts with 16 and 15 points respectively, while Don Draper is just off their pace with 14 points, including 11 assists. Jake Wylde is getting it done on the blue line with 12 points and a team leading 59 hits and 22 blocks, once again proving he is one of the most well rounded players in the league. Speaking of well rounded, 5'5" 250 pound rookie Oskars Harumpf is off to a nice start himself with 9 points, 24 hits and a 51% face off winning percentage. The rookie is not looking out of place in the VHL and is getting better with each game. Jackson Miller, Chris Raymond and King Czar are also having solid seasons with 9, 8 and 7 points and Czar is 2nd on the team in hits with 36 and 1st in decapitations with 3 respectively. Titans goalie Kimmo Salo is possibly having the most impressive season with a 1.91 GAA and .920 Save % along with 4 shutouts and 8 wins. Some were worried Salo could not hold down the fort for Helsinki this season, but he's quickly proving his doubters wrong. The S41 Titans are all playing well and working great together as a team as evident by their team statistics.




The Titans are currently ranked #2 in the league in goals against, allowing just 2.00 per game, which is quite an impressive number. They are also #1 in the league in shots allowed, giving up a mere 24 per game. When it comes to hits per game, the Titans are the 2nd most physical team in the league averaging over 18 hits per game. With that combination of physical play and tight defense, no wonder they are one of the toughest teams to play against in the entire VHL. Did we mention they're also 3rd in the league in Face Off winning percentage? Winning over 57% of their draws along with that great defensive play and a strong offense (4th in shots, 6th in goals scored) have the Titans looking like the team to beat in the European Conference. They already proved they can take out Riga with a dominant 5-2 victory earlier in the year so it's only a matter of time before the Titans take over.
