Henke spurred young
200 people took the opportunity to get tips and autographs when Henrik Lundqvist trained Lerum BK's goalkeepers yesterday. - Hopefully I can encourage young boys and girls, he says.
Many had to Vättlehallen in Stenkullen yesterday to meet with Henrik Lundqvist. Star goalkeeper led a training with Lerum BK's goalkeepers and afterwards got all curious children the chance to ask their own questions to the idol. Everything from how many Porsche cars he could buy into what a typical day looks like, processed through.
- The younger they are, the more spontaneous questions, says Henke Lundqvist.
The whole day was arranged thanks to 16-year-old Tom Olsson, who last winter took part in a contest where first prize was that the NHL goalie would come and coach the club's goalkeepers.
As Tom himself forward, he was content to sit on the sidelines and watch, but he was in all cases a signed New York Rangers T-shirt to be up on the wall at home.
- It's not every day you get to meet an NHL star, so I'm just happy. He is a great idol and my highest dream is of course the NHL, said Tom Olsson.
While Henke Lundqvist enjoyed the enthusiastic young people who wanted to absorb as much knowledge as possible.
- I think it's fun just to see how everyone is technical, but they are so young. It's the big difference compared to when I was at that age. I had no idea what I should do, but just trying to get in the way, he says.
