We recently caught up with Frolunda Defenseman William Lagesson! Does that name sound familiar? Well it should! If you remember well, another Frolunda player we interviewed; Anton Karlsson suggested we interview him! If you don’t remember it, maybe you should check out the interview again! Here’s the link: https://notyouraveragehockeyblog.com/2013/10/18/interview-with-anton-karlsson/. So a little about William! He’s a defenseman who plays for Frolunda, and just like Anton, this is his draft year. More of a stay at home defenseman, he isn’t afraid to join the rush. If you want proof, in 2013-2014 while playing in Frolunda J18 Allsvenskan, he scored 6 points in 12 games! For a forward, that might not be much, but for a defenseman? That’s a lot! He’s also had plenty of international experience, playing for Sweden in the U16, U17, and U18! If you like our interview with William, let us know!

Without further to do, here is our interview with William Lagesson!
We are in bold.
How has your day been?
My day has been good.
Do you follow a special game day schedule or superstition?
On a game day I wake up and eat a good and healthy breakfast. After that I often take a walk with my dog. Then I play some xbox. After that I take a powernap and eat again and then go to the rink.
What kind of defenseman do you consider yourself? Offensive like Erik Karlsson? Defensive like Shea Weber? Two Way like Alex Edler?
I’d describe myself as a defenseman, but I can also join the offense sometimes. So in the middle of a defensive defenseman and a two way player.
This is your draft year. Will you try to join the NHL Draft this year?
Of course I will try to get in the draft this season; it’s hard but I will try! I don’t really know, maybe because there’s so many good players and probably I have met the new Forsberg.
Do you get recognized on the street often?
No that doesn’t happen too often. It happened once but it was right after we won in Canada.
So you’ve played for Sweden a few times. Whats the coolest team to play against?
It was very fun to play against Canada in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.
What is your best attribute as a hockey player?
To defend the important defensive zones on the ice.
Something you need to work on?
Quicker feet, and my shot.
What has been the highlight of your career?
When we won in Canada last year, it was very cool.
I don’t know the lowlight.
So the next part is more of a get to know you part!
Weirdest thing you’ve seen on the ice?
When a guy on my team kicked one player in the other team.
Favourite hockey player?
Your roomate on the road?
It’s different all the time
Who should we interview next?
Thank you for your time!
