Favorite thing that happened today: during the break between the first and second period, it was Djurgårdens youth team born in 2006 that got the chance to show off in a game in front of the 13 850 people attending in Globen. Then, in the traditional manner, the kids took place by the opening and clapped with their sticks on the ice when the home players returning to the game again.
Usually the youth team goes of the ice right away after that but tongiht, nine year old Kian, went onto the ice again and took aim at the center. That’s where he set up, the players’ great surprise, to do the face-off. And the referee even released the puck to the audience great surprise. But Kian’s show did not end there at the face-off. He also took a turn past Djurgården’s bench and stretched out his arms to face the cheers from a packed Globen.
- He went past the bench and told the Särkijärvi, coach of Djurgarden, that he wanted to play, says Kian’s dad Mikael to Aftonbladet,(x)
