Skylar Pacheco will replace Albin Lindgren, who after returning to Sweden will not return to Lindau due to serious family reasons. The Canadian defender thus occupies the third casual spot along with strikers Martin Maritsch and Arters Sevenko and has already played for Lindauer in Passau and Klostersee. “I love everything I’ve seen so far,” said Canada in a good mood after her arrival.

From the “homeland” of ice hockey

He played there continuously for Brock University from 2015-2020 to 2020, where he had a strong 76 points as a defender in 150 games.

He was on the ice 70 times for the French and scored 29 points. Skylar Pacheco said, “Before my trip to Amiens, I played in Canada for a long time. But now I feel it is time to try something new.

old acquaintance in the team
In France, Pacheco has already been on the ice with Arturs Sevenko for a season. This shortens the familiarity phase in Lindau and certainly makes the gameplay easier. “It’s an advantage to already know one of your teammates,” concluded the Canadian.

Farewell to Albin Lindgren
With the new signing it is also clear that Albin Lindgren will not return to Lindau. After the training camp in Groden, the defender returned to Sweden for serious family reasons.
