they were against Austria almost 25 minutes on the ice, significantly more than in the first two Games. The idea behind it is that you're a little better in the swing?
this time We have only played with seven defenders. And since the Coaches have said, it'll probably give some more ice time for me. And then there was still quite a lot of Powerplay, so that I can then also a little longer on it I've remained.
you are not someone who has a hard time to stand on the ice, or?
(laughs) no, I like to play a lot. I think every player is happy if he can on the ice. For the rhythm, it is of course very good.
then you have more the Feeling for the game?
Yes, already. I personally had the feeling that I had to adapt to in the first two Games, and still needed some time. Against Austria it went much better. And since it helps for sure, if you have a lot of ice time.
Have you ever think about how it would be 60 minutes to play through?
(laughs) no, sometimes I'm already on the Bank and needs to Huff a little. It is also good if there is the TV Timeouts.
But you are a player that can handle the well. For your elegant and economical running style, it looks as if you could not be tired.
Yes, Yes, already. Every game is different. This also depends on the intensity. And sometimes you is no longer employed in the defensive zone.
What is it that has made your transition difficult?
There are a lot of Details. In the defensive zone is on the larger rink, always a little further away from the opposing player. And over in the NHL has the automatisms, if you're always playing with the same Team.
This year it came even earlier than in other years for the national team.
Yes, this was ideal for me. I was able to ride two preparation games best and a week with the Team training. For me, the Gold was worth.
With three Wins and nine points were the Swiss the perfect Start. What is possible here?
We have said from the beginning: With this Team, a lot is possible. Now, we had a great Start. But it continues on Wednesday with the game against Norway. It goes on and on. This is gonna be a tough game, as the last two. And then against the Big, we can tear something. (Tages-Anzeiger.ch/Newsnet)
