Joel Lassinanti was brilliant in goal for Lulea Hockey last season in the Champions Hockey League, and particularly in the Final against Frolunda Gothenburg. Now the teams face off again in the quarter-finals. While both teams have a lot of new players, Lassinantti says that the players from last year will draw on that experience as the team tries to repeat.
After being so close to winning the CHL title last season, Frolunda Gothenburg are extra hungry to win it this year. Standing in their way in the quarter-finals are Lulea Hockey, the team that beat them last year. While Oscar Fantenburg acknowledges that winning this time would be sweet revenge, he also knows that it's just one step along the way of their ultimate goal in the Champions Hockey League.
While #CHL quarter-finals are starting tomorrow, we take a look back with another episode of Garpens Europe as our explorers visit the small Danish town of Vojens. Did you know that SonderjyskE actually play on a slightly smaller ice surface? Which style of hockey do you enjoy more - smaller or larger rinks?
