  2. 1. We are at about the third season mark. What teams are most likely going to face off in the next Founder's Cup final? Well obviously I'm gonna say the Storm will be one. I'll go for the safe bet and say we'll be up against Halifax. Not only are they in first place, but they're only going to get better as more of the S66 prospects that they have reach 200 TPE. 2. What is one trade you'd like your trade to do at this moment? I like our team as it is. If I had to, I guess I'd like them to make a trade for a top-level goalie as that seems to be our weak spot at the moment. 3. The 3rd World Junior Championship Commissioner was just hired (congrats Frostbeard), meaning the S65 WJC is about to start. Do you think you have what it takes to represent your nation? I think so! I'm fairly confident I'm one of the top defensemen in this draft class so I suspect I'll be good enough to make team Europe. 4. Who are your early favourites to win some awards in the VHLM? MVP, best two-way forward, best defenseman, best goalie? HHH for MVP fairly comfortably because of those stats. Dimitri Volosenkov for best two-way forward - he's got the best combination of hits and points. Denver Wolfe for top defenseman; his defensive stats aren't outstanding but they're good enough and that point total is crazy (almost puts him in contention for MVP). Top goalie is Chase, absolutely no competition considering how far ahead he is statistically. 5. What's one song that you listen to before stepping on the ice, that will inevitably pump you up and get you ready for action? I listen to a wide variety of music so it's hard to pick one song. But I'd say a good pump-up song I've been listening to recently is Big For Your Boots by Stormzy. 6. Describe your VHLM team's General Manager and/or Assistant to the General Manager in 3 words. They're pretty cool
  3. 1. After one long offseason, season 65 has finally started. What do you think of your team's performance in these first couple of sims? We haven't done as well as I'd like - I was expecting us to be closer to the top. But it's still early and everyone's relatively close together in the standings, so we can turn it around. 2. How is the ambiance in your locker room after these sims? Still good! We've got a great group of active members so we're all getting along well. 3. Which team do you like playing against more than others? Any of the teams at the top of the standings, particularly Halifax or Vegas. I like to test myself against the best. 4. Season has just started, so the VHL Entry Draft might be hard to predict right now, but in what round do you think you'll be taken? Right now it's looking like late first round/early second round. It's worth seeing how everyone else turns out though. I have some places I'd prefer to go but at this point I'd like to keep my options open. 5. Besides hockey, obviously, what other sports do you like to play casually or watch? Football/soccer is pretty big in the Faroe Islands and Denmark, so I watched a lot of it growing up. Not as much now, since I'm mainly focused on hockey. 6. What's your game day routine? What do you eat before games? Usually whatever's available near the stadium, I'm not picky. But now that I'm in America I like to try some more traditional Danish or Faroese meals to remind myself of home.

  5. 1) The draft is over, the signings have settled down, and the VHLM is just about ready to get things started. Who do you think is the favorite, going into this season? I feel like Vegas is surely up there after winning the title. But I feel really good about our chances in Minnesota this year. We've assembled a really good group of players through the draft. 2) With teams filling up this quickly, further expansion of the VHLM might be a potential talking point. Where would you put another minors team? Based on the current locations of the VHLM teams, we have some open spots geographically. So based on those open spots I think Portland (Oregon), Winnipeg, Edmonton, Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, or Boston would all be good options. Maybe Atlanta too, if we're willing to expand into the Southeast US. The Meute moving also means that Vancouver (which would've been a really good option previously) isn't available, but there is an opening in Quebec - maybe Montreal? All in all, I think I would go with two expansions, one in the US and one in Canada. Probably St. Louis/Portland and Montreal? 3) The offseason's ending- what's your player's plan to get back in shape for game 1? Gotta bulk up! Nielsen isn't too strong or good a checking, so maybe a weightlifting regimen is in order. 4) Do you/your player have any preseason superstitions to help boost their performance? Always earn my TPE on Saturdays and Sundays Gotta put the headphones in, listen to some music, and get in the right zone before games too. 5) Now that you've had time to get used to your team, who's been your favorite teammate thus far? Minnesota overall has been great. I will say, as a returning member it's nice meeting newer members that I didn't know who are engaged - so probably both of my GMs have been awesome. 6) If the commissioners/GMs could do one thing to make your VHLM experience more fun, what would it be? Make Nielsen play better But honestly, I couldn't say much. I enjoy the league as it is already.
