    Defenseman Teemu Laakso has signed for KHL team Severstal Cherepovets after four years with the NHL’s Nashville Predators, Severstal said Sunday.

    Defenseman Teemu Laakso has signed for KHL team Severstal Cherepovets after four years with the NHL’s Nashville Predators, Severstal said Sunday.

    Laakso, a third-round draft pick for Nashville in 2005, played 17 games for the Predators and 217 for their AFL affiliate the Milwaukee Admirals.

    “The Finnish defenseman Teemu Laakso has signed a two-year contract with the club from Cherepovets,” Severstal said on its website.

    Laakso was the top goalscorer among defensemen while representing Finland at the 2004 under-18 world championship and 2006 under-20 world championship, but has never made the leap to the senior team.
