395 Scores in NHL is not enough...


...As you want to play as a wing man or center on Peter Forsberg's Charity team the Icebreakers as they played Floorball for the first time today.
This is what Markus Näslund learned as he ended up being a defender on Peter Forsberg's team the Icebreakers.

We read this and more, just now at one of the largest Swedish blogs on Floorball a.k.a. "innebandybloggen". They also let us know that well, Markus Näslund is probably still preferred to be seen as player that instead use a straight wooden stick with skates on his feet.

The same source however praise Peter Forsberg's divine ability to deliver passes across the Floorball field like few other can do, he was outstanding according to the same source. But then he has played a lot of Floorball both as a youth, and he still play - every week. That is cool cause that is what we do here at Floorballcentral too, ;-)

Other players that stood out was this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJ_mjU4DvKQ&feature=share&list=LPrhISx_ei0lY and this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHNh1NUGJTA&feature=related.
If you do not have time to check out the clips - one is one of the very best ever in world down hill skiing and the other is one of the worlds best ever in soccer... Then on top of that tonnes of other "famous" Swedes including a few of the world's very best Floorball players too.

As Floorballcentral speculated about if this Charity team would be able to bring on more power from NHL, since there seems to be a lock-out going on, well we were mistaken. But the idea was sweet.

Otherwise this was a magnificent success. It had been advertised as the game of the year in the Swedish town of Umeå and the venue was sold out.

Now we hope that someone will post a clip on youtube too and we will share that here too.

OK we have this one from Nordbon, via Beaudin and yes number 21 score!

Peter Forsberg's team the Icebreakers won this time with 6-5 over the Blue Wings team.
But that is not very interesting - what is indeed interesting is that this single Floorball game for charity raised almost a quarter Million in the Swedish currency SEK - and this was done for kids, with special needs.

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!
