Exciting news for ice hockey enthusiasts and all Melbournian Finns alike – this winter offers a rare chance to see some Finnish talent on local ice as the Finnish forward Anton Kokkonen will be playing for the Melbourne Mustangs, wearing #56. Kokkonen has previously played in the Australian Ice Hockey League in 2014, where he scored 59 points in 25 games and is now looking forward to going all the way to fight for the Cup.
Anton describes himself as a “playmaker type of centre” who creates opportunities for his team mates and wants to “bring a more offensive game on the ice”.
Come and be part of the action yourself at Melbourne Mustang’s next home game this Saturday the May 13th at OBGA Ice Rink in Docklands. For tickets and more information, see Melbourne Mustang’s website – and see you at the Rink!
