A story about my first couple of months at college, with a life lesson for everyone at the end! Enjoy the read! 🙂 I was well travelled, had lots of international playing experience, I graduated from an English-speaking high school, I was ready to go to college in the US! Northeastern University, here I come! Right, right, right. I guess nothing really prepares you enough for such a step in your life…. Read More

Dear Hockey, After 25 years of playing hockey, it is now time for me to retire from this incredible sport and move on to a new chapter in my life. Hockey has always been a big part of my life, a big part of who I am. Hockey has given me so much, made me the person I am today and opened a seemingly unlimited number of doors in my life. I… Read More

Hi everyone, As promised earlier, here’s my entire season recap. I think this will be a short one, as I did a Regular Season Wrap-Up, Quarter-Final Wrap Up, Semi-Final Wrap Up, and a Championship Final post. Some time has gone by now and I was able to process the entire season and especially the loss in the final to Lulea. Overall, I can be extremely proud of my entire season. I don’t many were counting… Read More

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great week with Easter break, got to enjoy your family and eat lots of Easter eggs! I’ve had another crazy week with the play-off final week and the Stanford Students from my university project on a visit in Linköping during that time. The Stanford Students flew in Sunday, so after our last semi-final game on Sunday, we met up with them and went for… Read More

Hi everyone, Last week was a crazy and a very much different kind of week. I think for the first time since the beginning of the season we had a Monday off from practice. It was a good feeling to get a Monday off and take that night to recover and recharge for Wednesday’s game. Further, we had an early wake up on Tuesday as we left with the bus for our… Read More

Hey everyone, As most of you know, last Wednesday was the start of the quarter-final playoffs in the SDHL After we came in 2nd in the regular season, we were to face-off against AIK in the first round, who ranked 7th. Lulea faced-off against Brynäs, Modo against Leksand and Djurgarden against HV71. It was actually the first time since I play in this league, that the playoff pairings were done like that….

With Sunday’s game, the regular season came to an end and here’s my regular season recap. We captured 2nd place with 87 points in 36 games played which in my opinion is great. All teams get stronger and more competitive every season, so we can be very proud of ourselves for capturing 2nd place. For me personally, I too can be very happy and proud of my performance and my achievements during… Read More

It was though, I put so much pressure on myself throughout the entire Olympics and then I had a brutal game like that… I was devastated. Disappointed. Sad. That was the ending of yesterday’s post! So here comes the continuation… After the game, we were told that we will already face off against Korea the next day at 12pm. Let me tell you, it was a very long rest of the day… Read More

Due to the emotional roller-coaster called the Olympic Games, I have been slacking on writing my blog and sharing my experience with you all. So here goes a post about flying high… After the historical game against a united-Korea, things got rolling for myself and the team. After a game off-day, we played against Japan. Although Japan outplayed us and were clearly the better team, we managed to get a 3-1 win,… Read More

Hey everyone, A lot of people over the years have asked me why I wear number 41 as my jersey number and I was always reluctant to tell them why. I felt embarrassed to tell people, but now I realized that it’s perfectly fine… 😊 So here you go! Back in November 2004, I was part of the Swiss National Team travelling to Beijing, China for the Olympic Qualification Tournament for the… Read More
