They have told me that I will take a regular spot


Translation from hockeysverige.se
 

Marcus Johanssons NHL adventure is about to start.
On Sunday he´ll take of for the United States.

Marcus Johansson travels to America to try to break into one of the NHL's most talented teams - the Washington Capitals.

The 19-year-old has already been in Washington this summer at the club's rookie camp.

-It went a bit halvknackigt (not that good) he says.

- It was the first ice sessions, I felt a bit rusty and wasn´t used to the smaller rink. There were a lot of young guys, but none from the NHL. I got to be there to get some extra training in the smaller rink, "he told the NWT.

He did in all cases get a positive feeling with him back to Sweden - and a promise to get every possible chance to win a NHL job immediately.

- The Coaches said to me several times that they belive really hard in me and that I will take a regular spot. But they also told me that I must realize that it takes time to adjust. And that has also been made clear to me by Nicklas Backstrom. For him, it took longer than he had thought, I was told, "said Marcus Johansson.

To all appearances, the former center of Färjestad comes well prepared for the U.S. Capital. During the summer, he left nothing to chance.

- I ran very hard all summer. First, with the guys in the FBK and also several additional times a week. Ulf Karlsson has been my personal fitness coach. We've been running speed, agility, inline, and much more, "he says, referring to the former coach of the Swedish track and field team.
