"He is perhaps Sweden's hottest hockey players right now."
"But his cold includes something greater and more important than score, assist or a neat spin."
"– Hockey should be for everyone. I met Martin Mutumba on Friday, and his children wanted to start with hockey after they saw me on the ice. Then I have succeeded, " says AIK-forward."
"For the general public are Daniel Muzito-Bagenda relatively unknown. The more familiar grouping in the hockeyfamiljen aware of Daniel's success in the TV-pucken 2012 with Upland or his appearances with the U17 or U18 for four, five years ago. "
"Then it became quite silent about the 22-year-old, who was born in Umeå, but grew up in Bålsta, north of Stockholm. And who went to youth school in Örnsköldsvik."
"– I went over to north America after my juniorålder and perhaps disappeared. But it was instructive year for me. Was in the Buffalo Sabres organization, but in the summer it became nothing more and I chose to go home."
"on Friday, he had a kind of minigenombrott. AIK were 3-4 against Oskarshamn on the Court, and the series finale saw the end in a minor for locals. Then slammed Daniel Muzito-Bagenda into two goals, one was a really class finish when he came in from the edge and put the puck in the perfect stitch that constitutes the target's cross."
"And the same view on Wednesday night against the Panther where there were two new goals. He has a crazy form right now with seven goals in last six matches and a goal in four straight games."
"– I'm starting to get more and more in the game. It is a transition from a small rink to a big rink. Then it works very well in my chain with Gary Nunn and Max Lindholm. We will find each other on the ice, " he says."
"”Racism was worse before”"
"– There will be many fun matches now. And over the five matches, we are better than Oskarshamn. We have better physics, and it will decide, " he says."
"But he has not only a role to make goals for AIK."
"But his immigrant background, he has seen the bad side of the hockey-Sweden that need to disappear altogether for that hockey should be for everyone, regardless of skin color."
"– Racism was worse in the past. Today, one hears not so much. I think people clench again on the ice. Certainly, there are trashtalk, but the words are chosen more carefully."
"In connection with the series finale ran Daniel on the former football star Martin Mutumba, they both have both AIK and Uganda as the common denominator."
"– Mutumba was glad to see me on the ice. And among other things, that his children could recognize themselves with someone. Now they became interested in hockey. Then I can make a difference."
"He is in the Iihf mångfaldsprojekt and know the importance of everyone should feel welcome to hockeyns family."
"– My dad could, not so much about hockey. But I had the luck that my big brother David started playing hockey and I got to inherit his stuff. Then my father got completely hooked on the sport and drove us everywhere. But all has not been as easy as I do. I believe that there is a resistance from many with immigrant backgrounds to start playing hockey because of the cost. It should be the amount of protection and equipment. I hope that the various ”hockey for all-projects” can change it. And I partially can change it. I get more with my skin color to play hockey so I have made a difference."
