I’ve been approached by Canucks.com to be this year’s blogger and I’m not going to lie, it was a little intimidating at first because I’m not that good with computers and don’t know much about blogging but I’m going to do my best.
I think it will be fun to try to write. In Denmark, we graduate high school when we’re 16 so it’s been a long time since I’ve done a lot of writing. We took all of our classes in Danish but we had to take German and English class as well so that will help – my English is definitely better than my German.
In July, there was talk about Darren Archibald’s blog in the dressing room during that camp but I didn’t read it but maybe he’ll have some tips for me.
Coming into camp this time is a little bit easier because I got to meet some of the guys in July and knowing some of the guys helps for sure. Of course, I don’t know these guys as well as the guys back home but I’m sure we’ll get to know each other pretty quick over the next.
I don’t actually know too much about the tournament but I’ve heard that it will be tough and fun at the same time getting to play against the other teams. We’ll see how it goes. I just want to do my best I can everyday and hopefully be here as long as possible.
I got into Vancouver yesterday afternoon and was kind of jetlagged so I just went for food and headed back to the hotel to relax. Vancouver is unlike any other city I’ve been to. It’s the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen with the big towers and surrounded by mountains and the water.
Where I’m from, Herning in Denmark – it’s nothing like Vancouver. It is much much smaller so it’s hard to compare. It’s just a cozy little countryside town. You can probably see all there is to see in the city in one or two days. It’s not like Vancouver where you spend a month here and still not see everything. Herning is one of the few towns in Denmark known for hockey so if you’re there, your most likely going to be watching hockey – that’s the thing to do there.
We’ve just finished testing and are on our way to Penticton for the tournament. We’ll see how it goes. I can’t wait to get up there – I’ve heard it’s beautiful too.
Got any questions? I would love to hear from you. Send me your thoughts.
