More CHL Import Commitments

Some of the later picks in the 2010 CHL Import Draft are making the move over to their respected new teams, with each CHL league getting a new addition.

2011 draft-eligible goaltender Dennis Saikkonen is excited to play for Brampton:
"it's really an honour to join the Battalion. It's really exciting for me. Canada is a much different country from Switzerland. It'll be great to see how it all goes. I talked to my parents about it. It feels strange to be going across the world to play hockey, but I think I'm old enough now to make the move. My agent told me that if I wanted to be a hockey player I would have to make this move."
Meanwhile, Thrashers' 6th round pick in the 2010 draft, Sebastian Owuya, is set to play for the Medicine Hat Tigers:
"it has gone very quickly and this feels very nice. I had a talk with my agent where we weighed the pros and cons. Now it feels absolutely right and I think this is better for my development than if I stayed home."
Finally, defenceman Lars Lundin is moving from AIK in the Swedish ranks to the Drummondville Voltigeurs.
