It sure pays to have a 6'6" 240 lb beast as your best defenseman. Hedman can sure absorb alot of punishment seemingly without it affecting his game.
I know Josi is a damn good player and all but if you were starting a team from scratch, how could you pick any other dman than VH first
Hedman keeps adding to the Örnsköldsvik individual hardware collection.
This one horse town with some 50,000 inhabitants so far has accumulated...
✓ Three Art Ross Trophies: Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Peter Forsberg
✓ Three King Clancy Memorial Trophies: Henrik Sedin 2, Daniel Sedin
✓ Two Hart Memorial Trophies: Henrik Sedin, Peter Forsberg
✓ Two Ted Lindsay Awards: Daniel Sedin, Markus Näslund
✓ One Calder Memorial Trophy: Peter Forsberg
✓ One James Norris Memorial Trophy: Victor Hedman
✓ One Conn Smythe Trophy: Victor Hedman
... and iirc he is the sixth Modo player to win the Stanley Cup:
Anders Kallur (4)
Tomas Jonsson (2)
Peter Forsberg (2)
Örnsköldsvik is not a place where I would like to live, but damn - there must be something in the tap water....
Now, some would say it's because there is nothing else to do there, but that's not true. If you look at this streetview pic
, you'll notice that right at the end of Main Street Örnsköldsvik (Centralesplanaden, to be exact), there is a ski jumping facility. And if you follow the road some 2-3 km ahead, there is a ski slope. Not a great one, but still.
Also, the large building to the left is the public bath, where you can go swimming.
And if you turn the pic 90 degrees to the left you see a mall. So there.
other things to do. But I guess hockey is the only one that matters.
