Bob Francis on putting Juha on the first line (AZ Republic) - 3/29/01
"Juha is the type of player who can complement Jeremy and Shane," Francis said. "He's a good skater, strong
on the puck, and we felt he would give them more time in the offensive zone, similar to the line last year
of Juha, Shane and Mika Alatalo. They cycled well and controlled the puck.

Tom Schettino (In The Crease) - 4/13/99
Wouldn't Juha Ylonen look good in the lineup right now? His teammates feed off of his speed, checking and energy. The fans also get behind Ylonen because of his highly-publicized struggles to score a goal last season. All Coyotes fans want Juha to pop the puck in the net and the crowd's noise level increases whenever he gets a chance to light the lamp.

Ylonen Re-signed! - 5/5/99
The Coyotes have re-signed forward Juha Ylonen, who would have been a restricted free-agent at season's end, to a three-year contract. Terms were not available. "It's OK and I'm very happy," Ylonen said. "They (Coyotes) came to me about it a month ago and we got in done about two weeks ago, just before I broke my foot. I'm going to be in the Valley for a couple weeks after the season, then I'm going home to Finland for the summer and start working for next year."
The 6-1, 182-pound Ylonen, 27, played in 59 contests for the Coyotes this season, setting career highs in games, goals (six), assists (17), points (23) and penalty minutes (20). The native of Finland ranked second on the team behind Keith Tkachuk in plus-minus rating with a plus-18.

On Being on the Olympic team:
To play with the best players in my country and play against the best from all over the world will be a real thrill for me," says Ylonen, a native of Helsinki. "I have played international tournaments before, but this seems more special with all the talented players who will be going over there."

'96/97 Springfield(AHL) 70-20-41-61-6
After leading the Falcons in scoring last year, the 26-year-old Juha Ylonen is in first full NHL season, primarily as a utility man on the third or fourth line. While he'll never be able to put up the type of points that he did in Springfield, Ylonen brings excellent skills to the table. He's a very skilled center with exceptional playmaking and a good stickhandling ability. Juha has stellar hockey sense and hasn't made many glaring mistakes. But what coach Schoenfield loves best about Ylonen is his grittiness; rarely will he shy away from physical play and he loves to mix it up in all the high traffic areas. He's earned a regular spot with the Coyotes and his lethal combination of toughness and finesse will prove invaluable.

Jim Schoenfeld on Juha's performance - 11/25/97 (Phx 3 - Stl 2)
"He's playing better and better. We've seen him do a lot of things well defensively and now he's starting to get some offensive opportunities."
