"”You learn to appreciate life in the NHL”"
"No back parts more tackles in the playoffs than Robert Hägg."
"the 24-year-old has gone the long way through the AHL, and after two play a match with Juniorkronorna chasing now backtuffingen gold in its first championship with the Tre Kronor."
" I intend to come here and play my game and it is not to power play, I can say, says Hägg."
"today, Three Crowns against Russia in the first dress rehearsal before the world CHAMPIONSHIP in Slovakia with NHL players on the spot."
"One of the debutanterna in the Three Crowns is the Philadelphia Flyers backtuffing Robert Hägg. Despite the fact that the feet are aching a bit, he is in good spirits after the first ispasset with the team."
"– It's fun to be here. I have been waiting now for two-three weeks ago we went out, it is fun to pull on the skates again, " he says."
"After the Flyers missed the playoffs, he has managed to spend a lot of time in his hometown of Uppsala and also had time to visit the island of Gotland. Now he has charged the batteries ahead of the championship."
"– Oja, they are fully charged now."
"Forced to say no in the last year"
"Robert Hägg has played three Junior world CHAMPIONSHIPS previously, but to pull on the blue and yellow shirt in the seniorsammanhang is something extra, he admits."
"– Yes, it is a dream come true. The JVM is also how great time when playing it, but the real world CUP is still the real world CUP."
"Coach Rikard Grönborg has coached Hägg in the variety of tournaments at junior level and wanted to have in 24-year-old already last year, when it became gold in Denmark."
"But Hägg had to say no."
"– that's the way It is sometimes, injuries, diseases and kontraktsår. It was a little bit of everything, which put an end, " he says."
"What do you think Grönborg see in you?"
"– It will make you ask him for. I'm just going to come here and play my game and it is not to power play, I can say, he says, and is developing:"
" I want to play physical, hard and play good without the puck in the defending zone and make sure that it's released in a little case."
"”to tackle, you must gain the advantage”"
"he's a physical back, there is no doubt. No defenseman in the entire NHL handed out more tackles than Uppsalasonen during this year's season – 258 pieces."
" I would like to continue with it, and I intend to continue to play the physical game, it is very fun."
"" I have learned to give and take tackles and win nothing on it instead of just go around and tackle. In order to tackle you have to gain an advantage, the puck or take the inside."
"Adam Larsson handed out almost as many tackles this year, it will be tough to meet?"
"– Yes, it had been fun to play along and see how it would go, chuckles."
"During the first workout he was in the hop with Chicago-the hill's Erik Gustafsson, who accounted for the highest number of points out of all the Swedish backs this season."
"– Hägg has perhaps a little more defensive responsibility in that combination, he is a very solid back who is easy to work with. He understands our way of playing, a good guy with a good head. On paper, it feels like a solid unit, we start so then we will see what it leads to, " says Rikard Grönborg."
"According to Hägg is the division of roles between them pretty clear."
" He is a really skilled player so I will try to give him as much puck as possible, I'll try to clean up behind it in its own zone. Maybe that is the idea when they have put together backparen also."
"”Learn to appreciate life in the NHL”"
"Robert Hägg has walked the long road to the world's best hockeyliga. After playing through in the SHL with Modo, he went through the AHL to take a shirt in the Flyers, where he has been a regular the last two seasons."
" I don't think I had been where I am today if I had not spent three years down there. You learn to appreciate life in the NHL, much more of it to go the way and fight all the way. There is nothing I regret, but I am more just very happy about it, " he says."
"Robert has two heavy duty] with Juniorkronorna on behind landslagssammanhang. After the bitter finalförlusten against Finland on home turf in 2014, he was very hard on himself in the mixed zone."
"He was inconsolable and had mixed reactions to openly have shown their feelings."
"– It is the input of time since then, so that I will not remember much of, but it is clear it was not fun. But at the same time, life goes on and, of course, had wanted a different outcome, but it is difficult to change it right now. Now it is new world CUP and we'll take it from there."
"How much do you long for a world title now then?"
"– Incredibly a lot. It will be really cool trip to go through. Hopefully we can win a third gold."
"What do you want to say to the Swedish fans who support you?"
"– It is just to come down and cheer on the us and stand behind us, it will be a really fun trip."
