There, Salomaki has four goals, eight assists in 27 games. Playing for the Kingston Frontenacs in the Ontario Hockey League, Mikko Vainonen looks to be heading down the path to the NHL. The OHL is the first stop, then the AHL and finally the big leagues. It will be interesting to see how he does developing in the next few years.  Vainonen has played 28 games scoring one goal and adding eight assists.
