September 2013 - News coming just prior to the Sharks training camp is that the position of backup goalie to Niemi is not Stalocks outright, but in fact going to be decided by the battle between Harri Sateri and Alex Stalock.  Sateri proved he was worth keeping as the Sharks re-signed him for another year, as they did with Stalock also.  This does come as a surprise as most feel this is Stalock's position to lose, but there could be a chance that they would rather have Stalock receiving more starts in the AHL and let Sateri ride the pine.  This is going to be one of the more interesting backup battles as both goalies are both talented.  While Stalock has dealt with injuries and some inconsistency due to said injuries, Sateri has proved over and over again that he can take the reins when given quality starts.  Tim Graveline



July 2013 - The San Jose Sharks have resigned Harri Sateri to a 1-year contract extension. He will most likely share duties in Worcester with Alex Stalock, unless one of them becomes the backup goalie in San Jose, which is very possible. Tim Graveline


January 2013 – Sateri is a flashy and aerobatic Finnish prospect who plays the standard butterfly style game. Through his junior career he was one of Finland’s top products representing them in five consecutive years on the international stage. Sateri is San Jose’s highest ceiling goalie prospect in a deep system but is serving an apprenticeship to veteran Alex Stalock in Worcester of the AHL. He is showing much growth as he is gaining experience and is displaying better movement in the crease in North America. One ‘X-factor’ that is starting to show up is his strength in shoot outs, currently he has lost three of five he has participated in but he has only allowed 5 goals in 23 attempts for a 78.2 percentage which is very strong. Sateri is currently amongst the hottest goaltenders in the AHL at the moment, going 6-2 with a 2.20 goals against average and .934 save percentage in his last 8 appearances. In deep leagues he is worth snagging (after well-known top prospects are gone) and storing with an NHL arrival likely within the next couple of years. Otherwise he should be monitored in his development closely as he is off many people’s radar and may be considered a ‘diamond in the rough’. Jason Banks


Fantasy Outlook: B-


Has yet to play more than 58 games in an entire season so workhorse capability is questionable, but has a positive upside on his talents.


Footage: Various highlights of some of his work in the NHL, AHL and Finnish Elite League. You will notice he naturally moves very similar to several NHLer’s from Finland. (Kipper, Lehtonen, Niemi, Nurminen, Nittymaki and Toskala)
