It takes a strong team spirit, both on and off the ice. There will also be another fun, the duels with Asiago: I’m looking forward to that and also the participation of another Italian team in ICE, because it’s an opportunity for us young players and the ice hockey movement. entirety to develop further.”

I can still learn a lot from people with a lot of experience, and I’ve also felt the affection of the fans over the past year and that has surprised me. A lot. The fans in Bolzano are very demanding and the pressure is enormous, but it is also a challenge. The negative result of last season should be an incentive to give the maximum.”
