An Icebreaker for Floorball - with the best...


As we already told you Peter Forsberg will play Floorball October 12th 2012 in Umeå, - well that is in just a few weeks time and this is only one part of the larger story.
One of our post on this subject went crazy in terms of readers - very fast - so we guess you liked it.

The team that is called the Icebreakers are not just another ordinary Ice Hockey team. Nope it is a Hockey team formed of players that play for charity and the proceeds goes to children and youth that either have special needs or are ill in northern Sweden. So this is a team that plays for the very best and good cause.

Then the players on this team are not normally the average Joe.
Here is a list of some profiles that earlier have played for the Icebreakers Hockey team in Sweden: (the list is borrowed from wikipedia so if you want to know more about these players the names are linked to more stuff)

That looks almost like a Swedish National Hockey team.
Then if the NHL lock-out is going on it would not surprise us - here comes the speculation again - we might see some new players with NHL relations that might end up in this Floorball game for charity.
But, even if we already now have detected that some NHL players already are back in Europe - it is most likely also true that most of them are fast tied up in other hockey teams and schedules...
This could possibly however IN THE BEST DREAM CASE result in a remarkable NHL related Floorball game.

Is that good?
We think it could be fully awesome if it would help the Americas to discover Floorball for kids in school - both for reasons of health and joy, a bonus beyond the initial charity cause.

But even if no new famous hockey players are added to Forsbergs Icebreakers - he still has an impressive team with a former National female superstar from the Swedish National Soccer team as well as a former player from the Brittish Soccer club Crystal Palace, and other interesting names on his roster.

If Forsberg played Floorball himself? Yes for the now gone club VK Rasket. Here is team action from that era, we do not have a clue who is in the picture though:
Rasket playing Ö-vik
Who Icebreaker will play? A local team from Umeå - called the blue wings...
If we would like to see the game - You betcha.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
