Tikkanen spoke to the reporters in Finland earlier this week and said:
Authorities in Finland had seized assets worth up to $178,000 US from Tikkanen, but the decision has been reversed since then. The date for his hearing is yet to be determined.
Tikkanen, who is widely recognized as one of the best hockey players from Finland, won a total of five Stanley Cups throughout his NHL career. He secured four of them with the Edmonton Oilers and one with the New York Rangers. Besides these teams, Tikkanen played for several others, including St. Louis, New Jersey, Vancouver, Florida, and Washington. Additionally, he represented Finland in the 1998 Winter Olympics and helped his team win a bronze medal.
