the Swedish Aftonbladet recounted a recent story of his extraordinary stir, which put a small Leksandin the city completely messed up. A strange story is strongly associated with one of the all time Finnish hockey players: a Teemu Selanne .
In 2007, the Ducks had already been 37 years, but behind was the one career the most spectacular of the season. 94 points in the regular season and the Stanley Cup -the championship - but not yet at that stage, the new NHL agreement.
Leksandin traditional ice hockey club Leksands IF floundering in the second division, but had managed to totally out of the bushes to pay quite a name confirmation. At that time, the 42-year-old goalkeeper legend Ed Belfour had been left without an NHL contract and arrived to the astonishment of all and finish off his career just Leksandiin.
I wonder if the background had this sensation transfer, but someone issued yet sturdy more gossip. A small town in the mingled tumult was ready:
– Teemu Selanne has been seen in dalarna.
– Teemu Selanne has been in the Lundellin book store Leksandin in the center.
– Teemu Selanne lives in Tällberg (village Leksandin around).
Those allegations were shot all up in 2007. The club owner steps to include many millionaire Per Olov Ejendalin said was lured Finnish Dalarna. Missionary ridge ”seen” Leksandissa constantly. People go so far as to report to the local newspaper, what He had eaten. I hear the Swedish national pride known falukorv-sausage.Knockout
Strange rumors mixed Leksandissa the deck beyond recognition. Leksands IF:n the then sports boss Mikael Lundström remembered that time Aftonbladetissa.
– We didn't get information to stop. People see Ducks everywhere. It went really far and affected us. Although torppasimme so many rumors as we could, we weren't able to stop Selanne-epidemic. The phone rang incessantly.
Selanne-the rumors brought the impetus also the fact that her friends Juha Lind played at the time Leksandissa. Lind told now that Selanne income really wasn't any point even close.
we Were friends, but we never talked about Leksandista. He would have probably enjoyed Leksandissa, but his focus was in the NHL.
Followed, eventually, humble public pressure in front to call selanne the agent, so that rumors would finally staple the wings. Ridge of the manager at the time served Ari Lehto shoot the strange rumor down also the tabloids. Missionary ridge was already a couple of years previously exported Leksandiin, for one reason or another.
– Teemu still do not have never been near there, and he hasn't been in the club with nothing to do, Grove said at the time.
He stayed in California to care for a newborn Fern-daughters and play to the end of his career in the NHL. But that was some dalarna for at least emerged phenomenon, which to remember.
