Skellefteå’s Jonathan Bodas, who was named the best defender in the SHL, had to step in as a striker in the World Cup match against Great Britain.
– That was a long time ago, and I haven’t done it since I was 10, says Pudas of the effort that gives it the “decent” rating.
But it was not entirely unexpected – the captain of the national team, Johann Garbenlov, indicated that this might be the case already before the match.
– He warned me before, that I would have to make some changes. Now it was the whole match instead, Pudas continues.
– But it was fun trying.
“Behaving in a good manner”
Johann Garbenlov was pleased with Hill’s efforts.
– He behaves well, he says.
On the back side, Tre Kronor is strong – but on the front side, you can only take injuries, or tire any players ahead of the upcoming matches. Hence the decision to give Pudas the new role.
We’ve had a bit of bad luck with injuries and haven’t reported any people. Garbinlov explains that we felt the need to spread the Ice Age.
And if the Pudas can survive as a striker? This is possible, but it is not a dream state, according to Garbinlov.
“Hopefully we’ll get more attackers here so we can fill four chains with attackers so the Pudas can play,” he says.
The main character himself says that he can imagine continuing to play as a striker, if necessary for the sake of the team.
– If “Garpen” wanted me to play there, I would, he says.
It was noted that Bodas assisted in the match which Tre Kronor won 6-0.
