Other information
POSITION SWITCH
In November 2021 he revealed he had switched from playing as a forward to goaltender. The previous month he had announced his retirement from competitive Para ice hockey due to health concerns, before discussions with coaches led to his change of position. "Hockey has been my hobby, lifestyle and motivation in hard times for the last 14 years and to get the message that time had come to an end was devastating. It's now 13 years since I first represented Norway, I'm still hungry for more and not close to feeling done. After what started as an emotional talk about reality with coaches and management a few weeks ago, the tables have turned and we found an opportunity we had to look into more. Now with the green light from doctors, the hospital and everything, it's finally time to announce my new path as a goalie." (Instagram profile, 28 Nov 2021, 31 Oct 2021)
