AIK and Djurgaarden are Stockholm's 2 most prestigious Hockey Clubs


OK.. and many of Sweden's very best Hockey players ever -has played for either of these teams... OK

But they have Floorball too..
AIK Floorball has been around for a long time and Djurgaarden Floorball just moved up to the higher levels of advanced Floorball...
So for the first time ever - they will now face off in a big Floorball game AIK vs Djurgaarden...

But that is not all - one of the players that will play for AIK - has done this before he has played in Several games between AIK and Djurgaarden - but not in Floorball - he played these games on skates...

Niklas Saevstroem has a 10 year long top notch Swedish Ice Hockey Career as his resume...
Via Innebandymagazinet in Sweden we learn that he say the following on how it is as a hockey player - to also play - top notch Floorball.. We quote..

"How did you transfer from Ice hockey to Floorball?
- Well you play Floorball as you start in school, every recess and like that.. I have always hold onto a Floorball stick since I was very young. The transfer is just a natural one - as I did not longer have a contract with AIK's top hockey squad I started to wind down my hockey career...and so on..."

Floorballcentral claims that in Niklas answer - the obvious reason why Sweden and Finland is ranked !st and 2nd in the World of Ice Hockey by IIHF - is easily to be found.  :-) Everything else is nutz ;-D

UPDATE - Djurgaarden won 8-3 over AIK - a fairly sensational result ;-D

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!
