What-do-you-know. There’s an article about Lokomotiv Yaroslavl in the Norwegian press, including an interview with the resident defensive machine, Jonas Holøs.
On Lokomotiv surprisingly defeating two of the playoff favourites:
“He (Dave King) is one of the best coaches I’ve ever had. He changed the momentum here. We’re being told all the time that we’re practically unrecognizable as a team.”
On local support after Lokomotiv Yaroslavl’s devastating accident three years ago, where the entire team died when their airplane crashed.
“The accident makes this city appreciate our performance even more. We’ve advanced through the playoffs because we’re humble, and we’ve worked the hardest. Not because we’ve got the best team, because we haven’t.”
