Caps' Juneau signs 10-game Finn deal

November 11, 1994|By Sandra McKee

Washington Capitals forward Joe Juneau signed a 10-game contract with a team in Rauma, Finland, and will leave Tuesday for a month in Europe, pending resolution of the NHL lockout.

Rauma is a small town of about 60,000 located an hour from Helsinki. Juneau said the Rauma team will pick up the cost of insurance to guarantee his well-being.

"At least I'll get to play some good hockey," he said. "A lot of guys are finding other options, and while it's maybe not as good as what we had, it just proves we can do something else."
