CHL Grand Final Preview
Preview Final - Tuesday Feb 7, 18:05 Faceoff
The Semi-Final winners are Frolunda Gothenburg and Sparta Prague. Due to their better record over the course of the competition, Frolunda have earned the right to host the 2016-17 Champions Hockey League Final. It will be played on Tuesday, 7 February at Frolundaborgs Isstadion, with the opening faceoff scheduled for 18:05 UK.
Frolunda Head Coach Roger Ronnberg on advancing to a third straight CHL Final:
"It will be really special to play the Final at home. We've played it the last two years away, so we appreciate that. I've seen Sparta play – they're a really good team. We'll have to play our best game in the Final to win the trophy."
Sparta Captain Jaroslav Hlinka on Frolunda:
“I haven’t seen their games, but I know very well their results, so I know how dominant they are in the Swedish league. However, in the CHL we've managed to beat three teams from Sweden – Farjestad, HV71 and now Vaxjo – so I don’t know why we'd be afraid of them. But it’s going to be extremely hard. Frolunda is probably the best team in Europe.”
Join Aaron Murphy and Paul Adey for all the action February 7th.
