UPDATED twice now!! Peter Foppa Forsberg ret Colorado Avalance change sport


Yupp,
I has just been declared in Swedish press that Peter Forsberg will switch to Floorball too.
He say in a local interview in Sweden yesterday that: "Yes, well since I do not know to skate anymore it is probably time for me to switch to Floorball, but he adds since I do not know to run either - I wonder how this will go..."
This is the funny part of this.

The serious part is that Peter Forsberg has a Hockeyteam, with some of the best possible Swedish players ever, called the Icebreakers - this is a team for good fundraising and it has been traveling Sweden recently drawing huge crowds - and yes they have also smashed several more local Hockey teams into scattered parts of themselves - uh, the Icebreakers play rather good that means.

But as they go to Umeå, in northern Sweden well they will play Floorball instead - to raise money for good causes.

UPDATE, There is a low quality interview too with Peter Forsberg all in Swedish:
He admits here that he plays Floorball every Wednesday in Stockholm and that he used to play regulary in a Swedish team like 24 years ago so he thinks this will be a good game. The date for the game is October 12th, and yes Markus Näslund is included in the Icebreakers team too.



Here is the Swedish article - if you do not believe us

OK,
WHAT IS MORE IS THIS - IN CASE OF THE NHL LOCK OUT CONTINUES OVER THE 12TH OF OCTOBER.
THIS SINGULAR FLOORBALL GAME IN UMEÅ MIGHT BECOME THE LARGEST FLOORBALL GAME EVER IN TERMS OF TOP NOTCH NHL PLAYERS PLAYING FLOORBALL together - THIS SINCE PETER FORSBERG SAY THAT ALL PLAYERS ARE INVITED TO PLAY ON THE ICEBREAKERS.
LOL, THIS MEANS THAT PARTS OF THE NHL WILL TRANSFER INTO AN ENOURMOS FLOORBALL EVENT IN SWEDEN INSTEAD -WE JUST LOVE IT - LET US SEE HOW THIS PLAYS OUT - VERY INTERESTING INDEED.


eh..
One more thing - one of the largest Floorballblogs in Sweden just recently described the status of Floorball in northern Sweden as..."Floorball is Hot as in a frying-pan"

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!
