Karlstad, Sweden is about the same size as my town (St Albert) but the local hockey team is a little better. Well, make that a lot better. Sweden’s delta city is home to Farjestad BK.
I didn’t know SEL players had their photos taken in a wind tunnel, but if that sells tickets then fill your hat, Sweden. Klefbom is off to a solid start, +2 in 3 games (all zero’s in the g-a-p columns) and is playing about 18 minutes a night.
He is slotted as the extra Dman today according to the gamesheet but that can change, as we’ve seen with this young man before.
Hat tip to VOR, who passes along an interesting item from this game in the previous thread:
- VOR: The Swedish game also features Doug Lynch who was once going to be a key piece of the Oilers. He moved to the SEL this year. I can’t help wondering if one of these days he shows up back in North America. Accept for one dump injury and his choosing to play during the lockout and before it healed he’d probably have had a long NHL career. In Red Deer he had the entire game, even his rookie AHL season was something special.
Go Farjestad! If you win today and Klefbom plays well, I promise to find out everything there is to know about bandy.
