Frölunda wins title in Sweden

Frölunda wins title in Sweden

25 Apr 2016 | Fredrik Pålsson

For the fourth time in history Frölunda from Gothenburg are Swedish champions after 4-1 in the final series against Skellefteå.


Frölunda won their latest title eleven years ago but now it was time again. The two top team from the league played each other in the final. Skellefteå played in the final for the sixth year in a row but this time they were never really close to beat Frölunda and only won game in the final series.

With a 3-1 lead Frölunda travelled to Skellefteå with a chance to end the season and win the title. And so they did. Even if Skellefteå dominated the game Frölunda had a 3-0 lead already after 14 minutes after two goals by Artturi Lehkonen who was the top scorer of the playoff. And Skellefteå never recovered from that start and even if they outshot Frölunda 43-16 it was Frölunda who won the game 5-3 and could celebrate the fourth title in the history of the club.

Frölunda had many heroes in the team. Johan Sundström was selected playoff MVP and got the Stefan Liv Memorial Trophy. Team Captain Joel Lundqvist who also played in the gold winning team in 2005 made one of his best seasons ever. Players like Lehkonen and Ryan Lasch scored many important goals. Goalie Johan Gustafsson came up big when the previous starting goalie Lars Johansson was injured.
