"A charismatic young man with extremely wide fields of activity."
"And who has seen the back of the world of hockey."
" I was down on the bottom. Had a coach who humiliated me and destroyed all the joy I had for hockey, " says Jonas Andersson."
"Jonas Andersson grew up in a middle class family in a rented apartment on the island of Lidingö in Stockholm."
"Work hard, study before the ice hockey it was as Jonas mother and father präntade in him. Therefore, it was a bit special and sensitive when the teenager Andersson chose to leave high school and go over to the new NHL club, the Nashville Predators a NHL-contract."
"– But I couldn't say no to it. It was mom and dad. I was selected in the second round of the team after Henrik and Daniel Sedin. Before the many great Swedish hockey players, " says the SVT expert to leave the Aik juniors for a bet, and gamble, in the NHL – or in any case in an NHL organization."
"It went like that. The vindsnabbe driscoll managed in the junior hockey league, but had it tough in the farmarlaget."
" I was the star in the juniorlaget, but had a horrible coach in farmarlaget Millwaukee Admirals of the IHL. He said that he had broken down Pavol] and then built him up and he wanted to do the same thing with me. He was open with it. I was really down on the bottom and it was a classic situation where an outdated management style, this was almost 20 years ago, had to take the reigns. He scolded me for the group and drove with härskarteknik. I ended up further and further down, was not feeling well and was really down on the bottom, " says Jonas Andersson."
"A young and fjunig Jonas Andersson broke up."
"And it didn't work at all with the activities for the coach."
"– He took me into a coachrum and showed the evening's line up, I was the 13th forward. He asked; who do you think you are going to turn out? I thought about it, and pointed at a guy who was a fighter. Then shouted the coach that I was not a fighter and mocked me. I was only 19 then."
"It took several years before Jonas Andersson came back as a hockey player. He had no thoughts of quitting. Much thanks to a special and maniacal focus on to achieve their goals, something he benefited from all his life. Not just on the ice."
" I wanted to the NHL. Spent a lot of hockey, had no other in the head then. And it took me eight years before I played in the NHL. But I did manage to take me there, " he says."
"Via, and with the help of the Finnish coaches Jukka Jalonen and Kari Jalonen, Finnish league, he got back the self-confidence and the desire on the hockey. He was relatively unknown to the Swedish hockeyfamiljen and despite decent points in the SM-liiga called never Three Crowns."
"When it was the ice Hockey world CHAMPIONSHIPS 2009 in Switzerland, on the dot 10 years ago, sold Andersson synthetic ice outside of the VM-arena in Bern. His first mission, and it has followed many projects after that."
"– Synthetic-ice was really to myself. I trained and trained, but never had any ice to skate on. Now I could build a private ice rink and thought it was a fantastic idea. But it has never really beaten, not like the artificial turf made in the field of football, " says Andersson."
"Rubbed his specialty."
"It was also ten years ago that most of the things went right for Andersson, on all planes and levels. The family grew and the couple Andersson gave birth to her first child in Belarus in 2010, he got to play the 2010 fifa world CUP in Germany and a KHL career in the bargain."
"– It is my speed that I lived on. I have been manic to develop my skating and with the help of Ola Olsson, Verner Persson so rubbed I the basics of effective ice skating year in and year out. I checked on how Coffey and Federov moved on the ice and tried to take after. Some say that you should train on their weaknesses. I think tvärsom. Continue to develop, it can be really good and try to become superbly good at it. It is a tip for young players that I can give. As Patric Hörnqvist and his incredible ability to control the puck in front of the goal. Many hours of training behind it."
"But besides the hockey game blossomed a gene made by Andersson that can be added to the title entrepreneur, visionary and business leaders."
"He practiced hockey on days, played games in the evenings. The rest of the time he worked with business-pdf files and networked via e-mail. Was a perfect symbiosis, where the hockey game took a bit less space and not everything in the world. An oasis outside of the hockey game. A useful such."
"Started with synthetic ice, transferred to the padel. In fact, one can say that Jonas Andersson was one of those who took the padel sport in Sweden and today he is a partner in eleven padel facilities in Sweden."
" It was my childhood friend Henrik Söderberg who persuaded me to invest in padel. We had with us Måns Zelmerlöw and Jonas Björkman. Henrik is the ceo and purely operationally responsible. I sit in the board of directors and counts on the financial and do analysis. We have doubled turnover every year since the start of last year."
"Took the wrong on a letter."
"the Hockey game came to an end in 2015. He got a notice that he had come into the School and were able to complete their studies and have now taken an MBA degree and is a full-fledged economist."
"– the school of Economics sent out a press release that I have been accepted, don't know why they did it. But. it was noticed and I got a call that changed my life and brought with them that I am on the world CUP today. I thought the caller said he was from ... and wondered if I was eager to be an expert. Took really, and just before we hung up, I realized it was from SVT and that they wanted that I would jump into a CHL-studio."
"It was the start of Jonas media career now that he is the SVT expert on ice Hockey world CHAMPIONSHIPS."
"And he promised himself not to work with hockey after his career."
" No, I didn't want to. Didn't want to be a coach or scout or so. But now I'm perfect. It is a bit like to be hockey players, actually. You play a match, go through it afterwards and trying to become better. We have a nice bunch of people who work with hockey and we really have fun together."
"He is unique in many ways."
"Not just because he manages to combine life as a family man, with to be with in ten bolagstyrelser and travel around Europe with SVT. What perhaps stands out the most is that he completely opted out of social media, no Facebook, Instagram or Twitter."
"– It gives me nothing. I must choose what I give energy to. Then I choose another. I am on Linkedin, by the way. I am then not so remote, either. It is a little nice when you have my role."
"As if that was not enough, he has embarked in a new industry."
"Together with his friend Hans Eckerström and a group of external investors, he has bought the fashion brand Henri Lloyd, who had a dormant existence and has undergone a reconstruction. The head office is moved to Hovås, and now Jonas in the evenings and at night, and draws up strategies for the brand."
" I sleep very little. Sometimes four hours a night, sometimes six hours. But it is a must to catch everything. I have read a lot about sleep and tried a little different grip. Any time I have tried to sleep in the periods and be awake almost around the clock. I sleep for a little bit, that I am aware of. But I have a lot of fun right now in my life and will be hugely triggered by to reach my goals."
"Just to reach the NHL."
"Or to prove to the canadian coach that he was wrong."
"Or bring padel to Sweden."
"Or to get better every day at being a pundit."
