The Canadian forward, whose contract with EHC Visp was terminated, has found a new employer: The Fischtown Pinguins in the DEL.

EHC Visp

"I'm more than happy that the Pinguins are offering me the chance to show here in the north that I'm a decent person and a good hockey player," Virtanen states on the club's website. In Visp, he reportedly affronted his teammates with his selfish attitude.

Only one week before the playoffs, Visp put Jake Virtanen on the market and hired two new import-players. In 21 games, Virtanen recorded 25 points with EHC Visp (14 goals).
