JONAS EMMERDAHL RETURNS TO FIFE FOR A SECOND SEASON

Fife Flyers have confirmed that Swedish D-man Jonas Emmerdahl will return to the club for the 2021/22 season, marking his second year with the club.

 

Emmerdahl joined Fife in 2019/20, icing 49 times for the club before the season was curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The pandemic has not stopped Emmerdahl pulling on his skates though. He spent the year at Swedish third-tier side Ostersunds, making 25 appearances and scoring 8 points along the way.

 

Before joining the Flyers, the 29-year-old from Stockholm played in the second-tier of ice hockey in his home country, icing for VIK Vasteras and IF Bjorkloven.

 

Commenting, Fife Flyers head coach Todd Dutiaume said:

 

“I am very excited to have Jonas Emmerdahl joining us again for another season, I have been instantly impressed with his professionalism on and off the ice.

 

“Last season he became a key anchor at the backend of our powerplay when seasons finally got clicking near the end of the year.

 

“We will make some improvements at the backend of the team and that will only show off his strengths more.

 

“I will be looking for him to be more of a leader this year in the changing room and be a little more vocal now that he is comfortable, and he knows what it takes to win in this league.”
