Vi vill gärna presentera vårt senaste nyförvärv från Australien. Tim Newmark är en supertrevlig ambitiös kille med stort hjärta för hockey. Jag bad Tim att presentera sig själv och berätta om sin hockeyskolning och hur han hamnade i Sverige och Mölndal.
Vi önskar Tim hjärtligt välkommen till vårt fina A-lag. Tim spelar forward i Sydney Beras men har också stora defensiva talanger varför han primärt kommer att spela back. Tim spelar i Tröja nummer 4.
Varsågoda Här kommer Tim:s berättelse. Sven Liedberg
I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, which isn’t a place known for developing hockey players, but that’s where I started playing hockey, and once I started I fell in love with the sport right away. I moved to the U.S. when I was 14 and played out in Boston for 10 years, where I played some junior hockey in the IJHL and NSHL, and played NCAA3 college hockey. After college I played in division 2 in France for one season, and then returned to Australia to play in the AIHL for the Sydney Bears, where we were able to win the championship.
After my season in Australia I knew I wanted to keep playing at a high level, so I decided to come out to Sweden and try playing over here. Sweden is known for having great hockey, with lots of opportunity to play out here, so I bought a plane ticket and figured I would try my chances at playing over here. I had a friend who has played over here in Sweden before and he told me about some of the teams out here near Gothenburg, and he mentioned that Molndal was a very good team that always produced a very competitive squad, so I messaged the coach, Magnus, and asked if I could come out to practice so he can take a look at me.
Once I got on the ice, I knew this was a team I wanted to play for. The skill level was really good, the team has a really good attitude and bonds really well, and everyone was really nice and welcoming to me, from the players to the coaches and the staff. I am really looking forward to playing the rest of the season with the team because I think there’s a lot I can do to get better, as we have a very young, fast, and skillful roster that will push me to become a better player, and I think I can bring some of my experiences to help these kids develop to become better players themselves. I would also love to win another championship, and I think with the skill level, and attitude this team has, we have a really good chance of winning it this year.
