Offside with Mattias Ohlund

by Staff Writer / Vancouver Canucks
There's enough talk about the tight Northwest division and power-plays so we decided to take the players away from the rink to find out a little more beyond the game. Go .

What was your worst subject in school?

Math - I don't really like numbers.

What is your favourite city to visit?

New York. The people, the atmostphere, and just walking around downtown Manhattan, you can't beat it.

Where is your favourite place to eat in Vancouver?

Miko Sushi

What is your Starbucks drink?

Just a regular Grande dark coffee.

What breakfast cereal do you eat?

Bran Flakes.

If you had a racehorse what would you name it?

Hmm... I have no idea but the Twins have a horse named Roland so I might steal that and name it after theirs.

What is the worst lockerroom smell?

Most of the equipment is pretty bad obviously but it's something you get used to so it's not so bad anymore. (Henrik walks by). But probably Henrik's equipment is the worst. (both laugh).

Who on the team would you choose to be your partner on the Amazing Race?

I'm going to have to say my roommate Trevor, just so he won't get upset.

Bugs me when mom...

Calls me for the fourth time in the same day.

What is the ringtone on your cellphone?

Just the regular, normal ring. It hasn't changed since I bought it.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

I would probably want super strength. One of the first things I'd do if I had super strength would be to clean my garage. I could throw away a bunch of stuff in my garage that's too heavy to do by myself. I've got a lot of garbage that I'd need some help to carry.

What is your oldest piece of equipment?

My elbow pads. They're probably three or four years. I've gotten some good wear out of these for sure.

What is the first thing you do when you wake up?

I have to put my contacts in. My eyes are too bad but I still need them to be comfortable.

What do you get teased about by your teammates?

Sometimes in the morning when I sleep in maybe it takes about half an hour to get going in the morning skate and the passes are a little bit off. They'll sometimes get me about that.
