Boden hockey har gjort klart med ytterligare ett nyförvärv, och det är ingen mindre än HockeyEttan Norras skytteligavinnare, Atlantagrabben, Kevin Loppatto som skrivit på för 1 år.

Loppatto kommer närmast från spel med Vännäs HC där han vann den interna poängligan med sina 31 poäng, fördelat på 16 mål och 15 assist. Innan han ifjol kom till Sverige så spelade Loppatto för NCAA III laget Manhattanville College i tre säsonger.

Loppatto är en stor och rejäl spelare som mäter 188cm och väger in på stabila 95kg, ett välkommet tillskott i vårt lagbygge.

GM Rolf Nilsson om Loppatto:
”En mycket spännande kille som spelat 1 år i Sverige och vet vad som krävs. Han, liksom Vännäs, gjorde en riktigt bra grundserie men hade tuffare i Allettan. En stor, stark forward med ett riktigt bra skott som vill ta nästa steg i Svensk hockey. Det ska bli mycket intressant att se honom i vår omgivning.”

Hemsidan tog sig ett snack med vårt senaste nyförvärv:

Hi Kevin and Welcome to Boden Hockey!
Please, tell us a little bit about yourself, who is Kevin Loppatto?
I’m just a guy who loves the game of hockey. My family and faith are big part of my life. I am very competitive individual but I love to have a good time and enjoy working out, watching movies, fishing, and pretty much any activity outdoors (only when it’s warm haha).

You had a great last season and scored 31 points, what can you tell us about that?
Last year I was fortunate enough to be apart of an awesome organization in Vännäs. I played along side Kevin Weiskog majority of the year and really connected on and off the ice. He went out of his way to make me feel at home for my first time in Sweden. We had a great supporting cast in Vännäs, unfortunately we did not go as far in playoffs as we planned, but overall was a great season.

What made you decide to come and play for Boden Hockey?
I want to win. Boden has an experienced coaching staff and a very strong core group of returners. Oh, and I can not forget the most electric fan base in all of HockeyEttan! Looking at free agency, the choice to choose Boden felt right and I can not be more excited for the season to start.

What do you know about the city of Boden?
Honestly, I do not know that much about Boden, but can’t wait to explore the city. I had a Swedish teammate of mine on my college who did his military service in Boden. But what I do know is that it is going to be very very cold in the winter.

Thanks Kevin, we look forward to seeing you play with us.
