His Finnish elite league team, the Lahti Pelicans, said Thursday that he had been invited to return to the North American continent.
Ylonen should therefore evolve with the Rocket de Laval, the Habs’ school club in the American Hockey League, during the next season. He was also disembarked on March 2 to make his professional debut, but the coronavirus pandemic forced him to return to Scandinavia.
The second-round pick, the 35th overall, of the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge in 2018 had five goals and two assists in 21 games for the Pelicans in 2020-2021.
