Leo Komarov can still swing even in his old days.
Konkar striker Leo Komarov has made his name and number known in the Swedish SHL in a short time.
In his new club in Luleå, Komarov has taken over the role of agitator that he is so familiar with. Aftonbladet says that in the match played against Rögle on Thursday night, the Finn had several conversations with the visiting team’s bench.
– He has to do what he does. He doesn’t even try to play hockey anyway, Rögle’s Norwegian puck Erlend Lesund snorted and continued to snort.
– He can focus on his tricks. He is not a very dangerous player.
However, Komarov, 35, has taken a place in Luleå’s first team. On Thursday, the balance was 19 minutes of playing time and one assist point.

From Luleå’s point of view, however, the match was sad, despite the moderate 2–4 defeats. The home team, which experienced three setbacks in the opening set, woke up only at the end of the second set, when Juhani Tyrväinen hit a 1-3 cut from Komarov’s pass.
Luleå still got to the end of the goal, but it was tight Julius Hongan For the 5+10 minute penalty that came Riley Sheen’s from punching with a cross stick.
– He put his team in a really bad situation, expert Niklas Wickegård criticizes the Finn’s recklessness.
At the top of the SHL is Färjestad, which started the season as the only team with two regular time wins.
