This is how we started back home in Sweden. I didn’t have a rink until I turned seven. So holidays, Christmas, or Easter we did some ice fishing and we skated around on lakes. Having the chance to do this as a job over here, playing in the best league in the world. It’s special and it’s something that, when you were younger, you wished for and you dreamt about. It’s been special to live through it.
In the game between Detroit Red wings and Carolina Hurricanes, the Detroit starting line up was exclusively Swedes. Even the goalie for the night, Jonas Gustafsson. Six out of six on the ice for Detroit where Swedes. - I wonder if we saw Swedish hockey history right there. I doubt that it have happened before in the NHL, says Tre Kronor coach Pär Mårts.
