  • Preparations Ice Hockey World Championship Minsk 2014

    The National Team coach invited me to 2 exhibition games against France. There I had two assits. It was a huge honor to wear the National Team jersey for the men the first time, especially as an 18 year old it’s something special! I was a little bit nervous before the first game to be honest! Against Finnland we lost both games but played pretty good. The next 2 games were against Russia. They had one of the biggest stars in hockey right now on their team! Alexander Ovechkin.

    It was such a great experience to play against a star like him. We lost the first game but won the second game 3:0. It’s a great experience to play against Pro’s. The next 2 games are going to be against Switzerland and USA. After the last game the team is going to travel to Belarus, Minsk. And hopefully we can be successful at the world championship.
