    Trym Isaksen

    Missoula Jr. Bruins

    My biggest dream as a hockey player has always been to play in the US, but I wasn't sure how I get there. Through a coach of mine I got in touch with SHC, who right away showed interest in me as a player and my needs. They presented me with two options for the upcoming season and I decided to play for the Missoula Jr. Bruins in the NA3HL.
    SHC answered all questions I had about playing in North America, the team I was going to play for and applying for my visa etc. Playing in the US is very different from playing in Europe. The game is faster, more physical, and everything is more professional. My team the Bruins, had a great fan base with up to 1000 fans at almost every home game! I have a great billet family, that took me in, and treated me like family. They will forever be a huge part of my life.

    Thank you SHC for everything you've done for me and my career so far!

    Without the help I got from SHC it would not have gone as smooth as it did. I have always had a dream of playing in North America. Thru a friend, I heard about SHC which was perfect for me. From the first phone call everything was professional.

    SHC helped me get in touch with Springfield Express in the WSHL. The team and city was perfect for me, both as a person and player.

    The season was very good and I developed a lot both as a player and person.

    I can recommend everyone who wants to try their luck in North America to contact SHC, their help is invaluable.

    Ogden Mustangs

    Last spring I just finished my second season of juniors and it didn't look very good for me for the upcoming season. I wanted to go to a different team, but it was difficult. Then I met a scout at a showcase back home in Austria. He represented SHC and they offered to help me. They helped me pick out the right leagues for my goals and my skill-level. After some research, the advisor and I agreed to contact the Ogden Mustangs of the WSHL. At first I didn't have very high expectations, but when I arrived in Ogden I was promised, not just a good season but the greatest year of my life. Looking back at it now, I know this promise would turn out to be true. It was the greatest experience of my life. 

    I got to play for a great team with very good facilities, dedicated coaching staff, a huge fanbase and an owner who truly cared for their players. I have to thank SHC. Not only did they help me make my final year of juniors the most memorable one but because of the good coaching and player development I received in Ogden it is now possible for me to continue my hockey career at the next level in Europe. Without SHC I would've never gotten this far.
    THANK YOU!

    Yellowstone Quake

    My year with the Quake, where to begin? When I first headed to Yellowstone I didn't know what to expect because they were a team that had won nine games the season before and they just got a new coach and GM (Ryan Theros). However, all I heard from him was amazing things which made me feel more comfortable with the change it was going to Wyoming.  When we had our first practice, I knew that we had something different everyone was going 120% and the intensity was amazing. 

    When in Cody the scenery is amazing. You wake up and go to the rink and see the mountains and it really makes you feel like you are in an amazing place. It is located about 1 hour from Yellowstone National Park. Before this happened, if  anyone would have asked me where I was gonna play, Yellowstone National Park was definitely not the place I would have guessed. But after this year, it was the best season of hockey in my life. In Cody, the fans are amazing. The team always sell out the rink and when you go around town, fans stop to ask for autographs or chat with you about what a great weekend or bad weekend we had. 

    Coach Ryan was amazing, he is the kind of coach that comes around only once in a lifetime. He will do ANYTHING for anyone in the team, he stayed up endless nights figuring out lines and helping the team with whatever we needed.  If you needed someone to talk to you could always go to him and when you left you felt amazing because he always found a way to make you smile. 

    When it came to practice tho, it was always business and we would give 120%. The one thing Coach always enforced was attitude and effort, and if you gave that he would help you with anything else. 

    The facilities in Cody are amazing. The gym is huge with everything you need to train and help you become a better player. It's also always open so the players can go in there anytime. The ice you can get on almost any day, and that's why I improved so much this year. If you want to get better and be on an amazing organization Yellowstone Quake is for you. 

    I have nothing but good things to say about the billets, owners, coach and basically everyone in Cody, Wyoming who made my year so memorable!

    My year in the US was a great learning experience both in terms of hockey and the social aspects of life. To come to a new country and culture is not easy, but with help from SHC I was very prepared for what would come and everything that can happen when moving to the US. I played fot the Valencia Flyers of the of the WSHL and it was really fun.

    We had a great group and everyone on the team were very close. We won the entire regular season, which was not expected when the season started. Unfortunately we lost in the Divisional Finals to the Long Beach Bombers. Personally, I feel that I developed extremely much on and off the ice. I played a lot of minutes, which made me feel comfortable and allowed me to get into the North American game rather quick. I had two good coaches in Josh Berge and Chris Greene. 

    The most important thing when taking the step to North America is to do research on the teams and coaches beforehand because things can sund very good, but it's important to really know what you are getting yourself into. That was what SHC helped me with very well and the team I came to was perfect. I was part of an organization with great people who truly took care of me, and I have SHC to thank for that.

    When I started opening my eyes to play in North America I was not sure how to go about it. I came into contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting who helped me with both finding a team in the league I wanted to play and who gave me a workout schedule to be fully prepared once I arrived. They also helped me with the entire process from getting a visa and explaining how I everything would be once I arrived.

    When I was in the US, SHC was there for me the whole time both as mentors and as a contact if there was anything I had questions about. They also came to the Showcase in Las Vegas which was very professional and fun!

    Breezy Point North Stars

    My name is Magnus Lindhe. I have been at College Hockey Sweden in Norrtälje, four years in a row now and that's how I got interested in playing in the US. SHC helped me to prepare for my trip. I got a workout schedule and other information. They helped me get in contact with a team called Breezy Point North Stars that's located in Minnesota. Breezy is a team in the NA3HL and has a very good hockey program. I really enjoyed my time there. We lived in doorm rooms right next to the rink, so we could get on the ice and practice extra whenever we wanted. 

    The hockey in North America is different than in Sweden. It was much harder and tougher, and players were so much more competitive. The coach we had in Breezy was hard and said what I thought all the time, but he was really good and one of the best coaches I ever had. He wanted us to develop all the time and get better. We played two to three games per week, but most of the time it was Friday and Saturday games. The games were always fun, the game is fast, the rink is small, and the physicality is intense. The fans were great!

    After being in Breezy Point for a few months,  SHC helped me move up to Brookings Blizzard in the NAHL. I was there for a week's tryout first, and made the team. The NAHL was quite a bit better than the NA3HL so it took a few weeks to get used to the pace of the game. After two months, I moved onto Kenai River which is another NAHL team. Once there, I got to play for my old coach from Breezy who had moved up to Kenai. It was a really nice feeling havgin him there because I liked playing for him so much.

    Playing hockey in Kenai, Alaska was really cool. The hockey, the nature, and everything else was awesome up there. We flew to all games and the road-trips lasted a few weeks at the time because it was so far to the away games. I played for Kenai the rest of the season and I really enjoyed my time there. Everything around the hockey and life up there was really good.

    My first year in North America was great and I learned a lot. I don't regret one second I moved over. I am very happy I got help from SHC to move over. They have been great to work with and are always easy to get in touch with if you need anything or just want to talk. I want to finish this with a big thank you to SHC!

    I've had a dream to play hockey in the US since I was a little kid, and Scandinavian Hockey helped me fulfill that dream. I came into contact with them at the end of August when things have not gone as planned in Sweden. We started talking about my options and if I had any personal requests, and just two weeks after I came in touch with them they had a team for me. SHC helped me with everything before the trip, transfer papers, visa application, and any and all my questions. It was incredibly smooth and quick, and they were very professional in their work. Even when I was in the US, they were there for me any time – day and night.

    I had the best year of my life in the US, and I will never forget about it. I came to Missoula, MT and I could not have ended up in a better spot. I arrived a little bit late but I felt welcomed right away, much thanks to the Coach who is the best I've ever had – his name is Marcus Baxter – who made sure I fit right in and got the best billet family ever! The guys on the team were as good or better, they took me in with open arms from day one and we become brothers for life. We had a really good team that went 38-12-2 during the regular season, but in the Playoffs we lost in the divisional finals against the team that eventually won the whole championship. 

    My best memory is still the first home game. I had heard that we have fans, so I was thinking "maybe we get 200 people or so," but then when we hit the ice and I see 1500 crazy people cheering for our team it felt like a dream come true.

    Thanks to Scandinavian Hockey I fulfilled my dream and became a better hockey player.

    I decided that I wanted to try my wings on the other side of the Atlantic, and I hired Scandinavian Hockey Consulting to help me. 

    Looking back at it, it was the best decision of my life so far. I came to GMHL and the South Muskoka Shields organization. Sout Muskoka is about an hour drive from Toronto and is an incredibly beautiful spot. I moved there in August and the season started shortly thereafter. We won our divison, but unfortunately lost in the conference finals. Still, I had a good season and some unbelievably fun months in Muskoka.

    I have never really been out of the country and or seen many things, now I got to experience so many cool things in just a couple of months; while still doing what I love to do the most. I thought long and hard about if I really had what it takes to move to Canada. A new country, new language, different culture and so on. I don’t regret my decision one bit. It’s almost the opposite. I had a coach who was one of the best I ever had. Everything was world class, from billet families to teammates. 

    My year in Canada gave me memories for life, stories I will never forget, and friends from all over the world since we had players from many countries. All this, I got to experience because of Scandinavian Hockey Consulting. Without their help this would not have been possible. I am forever grateful for that.

    Without SHC, I don't know where I would be today. It has always been my dream to play hockey in North America. That dream became more and more something I wanted to pursue during my second season of U18 hockey in Sweden. I felt that I wanted to try a new challenge and through an old teammate I came into contact with SHC. 

    From the first meeting, I felt how professional SHC was and how knowledgable they are. Just to find a team was a jungle with all different leagues over there, and it's something I would not have been able to do on my own. The help I got preparing for the season was invaluable. I had no idea about the visa requirements and other administrative stuff, but SHC made it all so simple.

    Before moving over, I was obviously nervous about how I would fit on the team but SHC had done a great job finding a team and league that was perfect for me, where I would be happy and develop as a player.

    I am now playing my second season for the Springfield Express of the WSHL. This season, I am the team captain and I was fortunate enough to play in the league All Star game. All this, I can thank SHC for who found me a perfect team and coach for me; and this season is probable not my last one in the US. If you want to play in North America, SHC is the right way to go to make your adventure as perfect as absolutely possible!

    When I was 18 years old I still played hockey at home in Leksand for a team called Häradsbygden. I got in contact with SHC at the end of my season there and we began working together to find me a team in North America to play for the following season.

    It’s probably every hockey player’s dream to test their luck over there on and off the ice.

    I don’t think I really knew what I had gotten myself into when I signed a contract with SHC to actually start the process. It was more my desire that took control then, but when I got the alternatives of what teams I could play for that was tailored for me personally it really hit me that I was moving from the small town of Leksand to the biggest adventure of my life.

    I came to a team called the Colorado Roughriders that was located almost in the middle of downtown Denver, Colorado. It was really nervous sitting on the plan over the Atlantic, but at the same time I have never been more excited for anything as I was for this.

    Once at the airport I was greeted by my fantastic billet family that I was going to live with during the season.

    The next thing on the agenda was meeting the coaches and my teammates. I must honestly say that the way they introduce and welcome a new player to the tea over there is extremely professional. I became part of the team right away.

    According to me, everything was a little bit better than in Sweden. Everything from wearing suit and tie to the game and real fans who bought tickets to watch us play, and even people who stood on the ice singing the national anthem before opening face-off.

    The season went pretty well for me and I really developed as a player and person. A really cool thing was tha the rink is smaller, and everything happens so much quicker than at home, but also that the entire team work for each other to win every game.

    Most of my spare time was spent hanging out with my teammates, and we did a lot of cool things and went on excursions.

    My billet family will be my friends for the rest of my life and we still speak almost daily.

    Working with SHC was great, and they contacted me throughout the season making sure everything was good and made sure I didn’t have any questions or needed help with anything.

    The main gola with my season over there was to develop as a player and learn english fluently, both of which came to reality. But primarily I have had insanely fun and gotten to know very many new friends I have shared so many awesome experiences with!

    From day one Scandinavian Hockey Consulting has helped me and taken care of me in an exceptional way. All the way from contacting schools and the schools that fits best for me to giving tips on how to act in the new environment.

    Coming to a whole new country and adapting to a new culture is everything except easy but SHC is always there for you in a professional way, and they will help you with everything you need to think of before you depart as well as everything you need help with when you start playing.

    Getting older and still passionate about playing hockey as well as getting a degree, contacting SHC was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Winning a National Championship my first year was an unbelievable experience and a fantastic ending to a great season.

    I was told about SHC by my goalie coach during my time with BIK Karlskoga. I have always wanted to move to North America and play hockey, so after high school I decided to try it. I came in contact with SHC and the planning started. I got very good help from SHC with everything from visa questions to workout schedules. Eventually, I ended up with the Ogden Mustangs of the WSHL, which is located about 30 minutes from Salt Lake City in Utah.

    Looking back at it, I could not have been placed with a better team and organization. Incredibly professional in everything they did, and just the fact we played in front of almost 2000 people at our home games was very special.

    There is so much more than just hockey too. I have met friends for life, gotten an extra family which I billeted with and seen so much. Everything from the wilderness of Wyoming, to Los Angeles and Las Vegas, to eventually end the season in Texas next to the Mexican border.

    The help I got from SHC was worth every last penny and I would naver had been able to make this happen on my own.

    Ever since I was a kid, I had a dream to play hockey in North America. When I got into the junior age I started looking into different options for me to play. I was over at a prospect camp in Boston where I met several coaches and scouts, but soon realized that junior hockey in North America is a jungle for someone like me, who does not have expertise about the different leagues and teams.

    Eventually, I came into contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting and felt from the first moment that they were the easiest and safest way for me to move across the Atlantic to play. They can answer all questions you might possibly have, which makes you well prepared for the move. The most impressive thing is their professional attitude and the fact how they really create a personal relationship with their players.

    I came to a team that fit me really well, both as a person and as a player. We had a good season but unfortunately lost out in the last round of our divisional playoffs. We had a great crowd all season with over 1000 people at every home game, which was cool and something I was not used to from home. I also met nice people which makes my season to a memory that will last a lifetime.

    To play over there is not always a sunshine story, but it requires hard work every single day but it is worth every second of the work you put in. Based on this experience, I got a super fun year both hockey wise and personally. I met friends I will have for life. All this, thanks to SHC!

    If you want to move to North America and play hockey you will get an adventure you will never forget. I would advise you to contact SHC because there are no one else who is as knowledgable and professional as they are!

    My season in North America was a roller coaster. I started out well in training camp and started the first games playing great before I started feeling an old groin injury. The injury caused me to sit out about a month from all ice practices and games. Once I got back, things did not go as well. I felt that I played better and better as the season went on after the injury.

    SHC helped me during my injury and to keep my head up and focus on my game. Off the ice I loved it. Despite lots of trades throughout the season we had a great group of guys and everyone was really close!

To be a National Champion was a dream before I moved over, but to become one already the first season I couldn’t even imagine.

My team, Missoula Maulers, was also great. Unfortunately we lost in the Divisional Finals to Idaho Steelheads. They won both games in OT, and then went onto won the entire league championship.

    I have gotten more confident after my time in the US. My way of playing the game has become more aggressive than before. The season ended with my teammates voting me "Rookie of the year". I now hope to continue my career in the US. People over there love their hockey, and there is always a lot of fans in the stands.

    The relationship with SHC has been really good. They found a perfect fit for me right away. I could not have asked for better help to find a better team and coach (Marcus Baxter) that fit me perfect. SHC's staff was alway quick and helpful with everything. I can really recommend them!

    A year and a half ago, I got a strong desire to move to the US and play hockey so I decided to contact SHC. I had been in contact with them before, so it felt very natural to get back in touch with them.

    I got a response soon after I contacted them and had a great dialogue with their staff. Already the weeks after Christmas, I got set up with the Odessa Jackalopes of the NAHL in preparation to play there for the 14-15 season. Odessa plays in the Southern Division.

    Everything went quick and smooth, and SHC kept everything they promised. They also kept me informed the whole way and helped me with everything that needed to be taken care of before departure.

    Once in the US, SHC was there for me all the time as a support and someone to talk to about absolutely anything. It did not even have to be related to hockey. I really liked this because they understand the situation, as they have been doing the same trip themselves and know how tough it can be at times.

    After the season, I have decided to continue my career in Sweden. My work with SHC did not end there, however. I have Daniel Ljung from SHC as my agent, and I want to point out that working with SHC opens so many doors for you even if you decide not to continue your career in North America.

    Both my parents and I are extremely happy with how everything has been taken care of by SHC and this is an adventure that have not just developed me as a goaltender, but as a person too and I will carry that with me for the rest of my life!

    Since my first year of juniors in Sweden, I have been interested in playing in North America but I was not sure how to go about making it happen. I was told by a friend to contact SHC and I did right away.
    Together, we decided that I should finish high school in Sweden so that I could focus 100% on hockey once I moved over.

    In the spring before it was time to move over, SHC started looking fro teams for me. We wanted a team where I would play a lot, and get used to the american style of hockey. Eventually, we found a good fit – the Arizona Redhawks which was located downtown Phoenix.

    In the middle of August, I left Sweden for a much warmer Phoenix and the team’s training camp. I had pretty high expectations, but it showed that because of a late coaching change the recruiting of the team had been poor. After the first half of the season we were the last place team in the entire league. But despite the poor results, I got more ice time than I could almost handle so I quickly adapted to North American hockey.

    Once in the US, I had a lot of contact with SHC who gave me advise on how to finish the season. I decided to ask for a trade. After a lot of complications, SHC helped me get moved to Wyoming and the Casper Coyotes. It was a great step up, from the worst team in the league to one of the best. Even though the team was so much better than the Redhawks I got a lot of playing time – much because I was used to playing a lot in Arizona.

    The season had its ups and downs, but much thanks to SHC it was an overall success. It has been a great learning experience and I have developed a lot both as a player and person.

    To move over and play junior hockey in the US is the bes thing I have ever done. If you also wants to play in the US and get memories that will last a lifetime, contact SHC right away!

    Being from Switzerland, where the idea of American college hockey is barely understood, few people encouraged me to go the NCAA route. Thus, Scandinavian Hockey Consulting was a huge help for me in planning my junior and college hockey adventure in the United States.

    We decided that it would be best for me to play one last year of juniors in the US before going to college with the goal to improve my English skills and to get used to the North American style of the game. Scandinavian Hockey Consulting introduced me to several junior hockey programs and in the end we decided that the Wichita Falls Wildcats would be the best fit for me.

    It took me a while to get used to the different game and lifestyle but SHC’s staff was always there for me to help out wherever they could. After a decent year in the NAHL, I was offered to play college hockey at Lawrence University. Going to Lawrence University was the best possible decision I could have made. I absolutely love the hockey program and the classes are challenging but a ton of fun. Without Scandinavian Hockey Consulting, I probably would have never ended up at Lawrence and for that I am extremely thankful.

    Scandinavian Hockey Consulting have helped me extremely much in becoming the hockey player I am today. Currently, I play for the Kenai River Brown Bears of the NAHL and I do not regret taking the chance to move I have not only become a better hockey player, I have also become a better human, learned the english language, and playd in many different parts of the US – everything from Textas to Alaska. The connections SHC’s staff have in the US and Canada goes though every league. If you want to play in North America, I recommend you to contact SHC to get the help you need to move on with your career. They can help you with anything, juniors, college, and even pro.

    My dream has always been to play hockey for an American college and Scandinavian Hockey Consulting has been the fulfilling factor of this dream. For a Swiss player, there is little to no help to follow this path, so I’m really thankful that SHC has made it possible for me to get a degree and play hockey on a good level at the same time. They work very professionally and take good care of you, no matter what country you come from.

    My experience with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting is a very detailed relationship between the player and his family with teams and colleges. Immediately, you get to feel the safety and comfort associated with being part of the “SHC-Family” and you understand right away what the steps are and what is going to happen when you speak to their Swedish representative. SHC will tell you that they are always available if you need anything, and I can vouch for how that is the case. When in the US, their Swedish rep over there called me multiple times to check in how I am going because he had not heard from me in a while.

    The SHC-representative in Sweden really knows everything about what needs to happen before you are ready to travel to North America and meet up with the new team for the first time. He is also phenomenal as a person with knowledge for us goalies, since he was a goalie himself and understands out position.

    Their Swedish representative in the US is “the man, the myth, the legend” that knows everything about college and junior hockey! It feels like he knows everyone, and has an incredible network of people who respect him.

    I have felt an enormous amount of comfort being part of Scandinavian Hockey Consulting, and I am far from the only one to feel that way. I can highly recommend SHC if you want to play hockey in North America and have an adventure you will never forget.

    Thank you guys for everything you have done for me!

    My name is Alfred Johansson and I am currently in my first year at Marian University in Wisconsin which is an NCAA DIII Team. I played junior hockey in the US two years before college. My path has been somewhat different than that of other SHC-players. My first year, I came to the US with help from personal connections, and was able to move up to the Wichita Falls Wildcats of the NAHL during my second year. I started working with SHC at the end of my second season of junior hockey, and I truly wish I started working with them earlier.

    At the end of my second season of junior hockey college was realyl not a real option for me, but with help from SHC I got in touch with several colleges and I am extremely happy with where I am today. I had plans on coming home and return to my every-day life in Sweden, but after contacting SHC I was able to combine hockey at a high level and get an education.

    Two things that stand out with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting is their incredible network and honesty. The network this organization has is someting above and beyond anything you can imagine. What is unique with SHC is that they are truly trustworthy and are very well respected among coaches and scouts over here. After my years in the US I often get the question from players, coaches and scouts if I know the SHC-staff. Everyone knows who they are and what they do.

    Their ability to place players at the appropriate level on a good team is outstanding. It comes fromt heir transparency and honesty. In my case, they knew what kind of player I was, where I would fit in the best, and where I would be able to develop both as a player and a person. Many other organizations have a way of promising things they cannot keep, just to make you sign with them. SHC only cares about the individual and what is best for that player, and then they do everything to help move that player onto the next level.

    I have everything to thank SHC for. I have gotten so much help, and I know I would not have had this opportunity without them. Contacting SHC is one of the best things I have ever done, and like I said I wish I did it earlier. If you want to play hockey in the US there is no better way to go than SHC, and that’s just the way it is.

    Thanks to that SHC was in the rink one day, and talked with my dad I made a decision I never had to regret. To play hockey in the US has not only developed my language and hockey skills, but as a person too.

    I had always dreamt about playing hockey in North America, and to feel how hockey should be. Just like any hockey player has! The fact is all happened, was like a dream come true.

    It was the most fun, but also the toughest thing I have ever done. You do not only learn hockey hockey works and how the language is used in reality outside of watching movies and other stuff. You will get a lot of new connections, and not just a great hockey season. I also got to know friends and “family” that I will be in touch with for the rest of my life.

    I still speak with the family I lived with via Skype or email 2-3 times per month. The fact that SHC is on site in the US is incredibly convenient if you need anything done, or have any questions.

    Thanks to everyone at SHC. You guys are the best!

    After having completed my degree at Frölunda Indians Hockey High School where I also played juniors in one of Sweden’s best hockey organizations I had a difficult choice to make. Go all in and try to become a professional hockey player, or basically call it quits and continue my studies in college. There is no way to combine those two in Sweden, but I had heard that it was possible in the US. I had a few friends who had already made the move to try college hockey, and after speaking with them I realized that this might be the best way for me to. But now the next problem arose – how do I start, who do I talk to, what paperwork is required and where do I submit those, etc…

    SHC entered the picture when I heard about their services through a teammate. That’s when it all started, an adventure I could never have dreamt about or be able to experience on my own. Since day, SHC helped me with everything – fill out visa paperwork, apply to colleges, speaking to coaches, and researched schools that fit me and what I was looking for. Not only did they help me find a college that was a perfect match, but after I got there they continued to be by my side when I needed anything such as opening a bank account, what cell phone provider to go with and so on.

    In the spring of 2014, I graduated with a degree in Economics from Lawrence University in Wisconsin where I spent four years. It has been the most fun and educating years of my life where I got to play the sport we all love while getting an education in a subject I am passionate about. Not to mention all the friends I have met and will keep in close contact with for the rest of my life.

    The hockey in College is different from junior hockey in Sweden. It’s faster, tougher, and less of a finesse game. During my four years I have developed both as a player and a person – primarily as a person. Moving to another country, and live in a different culture is rewarding and gives a great perspective on things, no matter your background.

    I want to thank SHC for making this experience possible. I have gotten professional help from SHC any time I needed it, but primarily I have gotten a friend for life in SHC’s representative in North America who has been in the US during my four years and we became close, and will always be!

    Thanks to everyone at SHC for everything. I strongly recommend everyone who is interested in continuing their hockey careers, but also wants a degree to move to the US with help from SHC.

    For a long time, I had been curious about playing hockey in the US but never had the knowledge about how to make it happen. One day, I got in contact with SHC, and it felt great right from the first meeting with them.

    The entire work process was very smooth and everything was extremely professionally ran. If I ever had any questions or wondered anything, all I had to do was ask. With SHC’s experience and expertise, we found a team that was “the perfect match”. During my season with the Texas Brahmas I developed a lot as a hockey player, which has opened so many new doors in my career. I did not only develop as a hockey player, but also as a person – and for that I will be thankful for the rest of my life.

    During my senior year fo High School, I played hockey in the US. I returned home to Sweden to graduate, and felt that I wanted to go back to the US and play more hockey over there.

    I was not sure how to go about finding a team, but was connected to SHC thru a family friend. I contacted them, and the rest is history.

    SHC quickly found me a team to play for, and I had the opportunity to ask them for another one should I not like the first one they offered me. However, I had no problems with the team they found me, and I immediately started my research my new organization and my new home town, Stevens Point, Wisconsin.

    My experience was unbelievable, and I have SHC to thank for much. Without their help to find a team, get my visa, and continuous support all the time with everyday problems and questions about hockey in the US this whole things would have been a completely different story.

    Thanks to SHC I was offered an opportunity to play college hockey and win a National Championship! Playing junior -and college hockey over here is like living the dream and I don’t regret it for a second that I have lived over here for almost five years now.

    After my last season of J20 hockey in Sweden, i started to consider my hockey future. I had played some hockey at the Division 2 level during the season, but felt that I wanted a better challenge. I knew that juniorhockey in the USA was possible one extra year in the US.

    I found SHC on the internet and contacted their swedish staff. It turned out being one of the the best things I ever did.

    During the spring I spoke with SHC regularly, and in May I signed a contract with Ogden Mustangs of the WSHL.

    My time spent in the US was fantastic both on and off the ice. I loved with a great family, and I had success on the ice. I was well taken care of and everything was organized for me when I arrived. Now and then, I had contact with SHC´s staff in the US as well – as they checked in to make sure everything was going as planned.

    We won our division and made the playoffs and it was the most memorable hockey season I have had. My experience was unreal, and I really feel I developed both as a hockey player and a person.

    After Christmas, I was contacted by a few colleges and I decided to continue my career at Castleton State College in Vermont. SHC adviced me with schools, and was a big help.

    Don’t hesitate if you want to play hockey in the US. Contact SHC, and you will not regret it!

    My wish-list when I contacted SHC was to, except come to a team where I had an opportunity to play a lot, to have a great experience. SHC send me to sunny California and put me on a team that had just lost its starting goaltender, and who had some of the best fans and game entertainment in the league. It could not have been a better setup for me!

    It felt comforting that I could contact SHC during my time in the US in case I had any problems, but also before the trip when it was time to get a visa etc. I strongly recommend SHC to anyone who wants to move to the USA and play hockey.

    I came into contact with SHC during my time playing J20 Superelit for Västerås. I have always wanted to combine studies with hockey, and needed help to move on. Already after a few weeks after my first contact with SHC they came to see me play. Upon graduation from High School, I played half a season for Indiana Ice of the USHL. The summer after that, I participated at College Hockey Sweden and SHC worked hard to find me a good team in the US. This time, I moved to Dallas, Texas and the Lone Star BRahmas of the NAHL.
    Junior Hockey in the US is a fantastic experience. It gave me all necessary tools to develop and this was a time of my life I will never forget!

    Taking the step and move to the US to chase my dream is the best decision I have ever made. During College Hockey Sweden and my time in the NAHL, I came into contact with Lawrence University which is located in Appleton, WI. After a visit on campus, I quickly realized it was a school that fit me perect! I am now in my second year at Lawrence and is really truly enjoying my time here. There are days when things are tough, but at those times I think about how thankful I am to have the opportunity to do what I love every day!

    Without SHC I would not be where I am today. From day 1, they have helped me with everything I have needed. I am so thankful, and recomend them strongly if you want to play hockey in the US! Contact SHC to reach your dream!

    After having worked a couple of years upon graduating from High School, it was time to start studying again. The dream to study and play hockey in the US has always been there, so it was a natural step for me starting to look for schools on the other side of the Atlantic. I realized rather quick that findiing a school in the US where everything fit what I needed was a jungle.

    A friend of mine recommended me to contact SHC, and I immediately liked their ideas and processes. I got a couple of alternatives to choose from, and eventuelly decided to attend St. Norbert College in Green Bay, Wisconsin. I have been at St. Norbert for one year now, and I can conclude that I could not have ended up at a better place! The hockey team accepted me with open arms and both hockey and studies are going great.

    Both myself and my family are grateful for the help I got from SHC, and there is no doubt I can recomend them to any young hockey player who dreams about playing and studing in the US!

    My 9 months with the Jr Blues were both great and something totally different from what I’m used to – which I think was the reason to why I had so much fun. The game was more intense, people more easy going and the American culture a pure blast to explore. That’s also some of the reasons to why I decided to stay another 4 years in St Louis and go to college.

    Junior hockey is doubtless the right path if you’re looking for a season full of great experiences and further on a good education both on and off the ice at a college level – and no one is better suited than SHC when it comes to finding the right team for you.

    Since I was 10 years old my dream have been to play hockey and live in the US – SHC made this dream come true. Contacting SHC is the best decision I have made in my life and I will forever be grateful for their help. During my year in USA have have gotten to know new friends that I will be in touch with for the rest of my life, and gotten memories that will never fade away.

    Playing hockey in the US is incomparable to playing in Sweden, everything is so much bigger over here. Everything from your own team busses, live streamed games with commentators and cheerleaders. It is a completely different culture here, but honestly I like it more here than in Sweden – and that says it all about my experience during my first season. Hockey have never been as fun as it is playing for the Patriots and I love the city.

    I live in Virginia, 25-30 minutes from Washington, DC. The Climate here is fantastic and the hot summer climate lasts long into the winter. To be able to go from the rink to the beach is totally crazy.

    Potomac Patriots is the most professional organization I have been a part of, and it has become my family. I have never been in on a team where every player have such strong relations with each other. we became brothers.

    The professionally within the organization is crazy good and we have the San jose Sharks strength coach, Ken Hetzel, who runs out off ice program. How many teams can say that they have an NHL-strenght coach? The practices are great and the ability to have ice year around is also something new for a player like myself growing up in Sweden. It is a great thing for player development! Potomac Patriots have made me a better hokey player, and the trip to the US made me a better person. I grew on and off the ice.

    Everything from my fantastic billet family to all new friends I have gotten and the memories I have, my first year int he US was absolutely fantastic and I have SHC to thank for everything. No one knows this stuff better than them!

    Thank you SHC

    SHC made my childhood dream come true. They took all my requests into consideration and successfully placed me on in a league that fit me well in a short time. They had answers to all my questions about preparation and american junior hockey.

    To play in North America was not only good for me as a hockey player, but I grew as a person as well. I have experienced things this past season that I would never have done without getting in touch with SHC. Despite a shoudler injury that took two months to heal, I can still say I had the best year of my life. If I could turn back time and do it all again, I would.

    To play hockey in the states has always been one of my big dreams, but I had no idea how I was going to get there. Then one good friend and old Coach of mine told me about SHC, I came to one of the camps during the summer and as soon as I had a talk with SHC about what I wanted, they started the process to find a league and a team that would be a good fit for my level.

    Within a short time SHC found a couple of teams that would be a good option for me. One of the teams they told about was in Pittsburgh. After talking with SHC we found out that Pittsburgh would be the best option, they got me in touch with the coach and he told me more about the team, which just made me more confident that going there would be the best solution for me. Going to the states all by yourself can be pretty scary at some points, so it was great to have SHC behind me all the way, so if something would go wrong they would help me out with it.

    When I first came to Pittsburgh I was picked up by my billet family at the airport, I stayed with a grandma that could not have been nicer to me, she made the greatest food and I can’t thank her and the rest of her family enough for all the help and support they have given me. She also had to grandsons that is playing hockey that I got really close to.

    The team I played for was called Pittsburgh Vengeance, we started of with a pretty much all new team, and we got a great Coach that came back after being away from the team for couple of years. The start of the season was pretty tough, we did not play very well. But around Christmas time we really started to play better and we started to look more as a team that was pulling in the same direction. Some guys might have heard about this, but in that same period of the season one of my good teammates Kevin Kenny fell awkward into the board and broke his neck. Within short time we got the message that he was paralyzed waist and down. This is one of the toughest things I have ever been through, not only as a player but most of all as a person. It was really tough for us all and we didn’t really know what to say or do. But we had some long talks together in the team and we knew that we just had to stand closer together and help each other out as much as we can during times like these. Which we did, it really pushed us to stand together and we all started to understand how important it is to be a team. Both on and off the ice.

    So after all that said it has really been a memory of a lifetime and a dream come true, where I have met a lot of great people and got a lot of new friends that I will stay in touch with for the rest of my life, and I can’t thank SHC enough for helping me out with that!

    Since I was very young, I have dreamt about playing hockey in the US and I have to thank SHC for making it possible for me to fulfill that dream.

    It all started when I signed up for their camp, College Hockey Sweden, in Norrtälje. It was how I started looking more realistically about junior hockey in the US.

    A year and a half later I decided to pack my bags and move to the land of opportunities. I ended up playing for San Diego Gulls in a league called WSHL. Being able to be on the beach all day, and then go to the rink in flip-flops and shorts to practice is unbeatable. It is like a long long summer that never ends.

    The season started pretty rough for me as I was not used to the style of hockey. It was full speed and nothing else, and there were a lot more physical play than back home in Sweden. Halfway through the season, by Christmas, things started falling into place and much of that is because of my coaches Craig Carlyle and Ross Carmichael who had lots of patience with me and gave me help and advise, and also let me practice extra when I wanted to. Even though things started going better for me, we did not qualify for the playoffs. We had a good team, but could not really figure it out.

    During the season I also had contact wich SHC and met their representative in Las Vegas at the League Showcase. They were very helpful with everything during the season and if I ever had any questions it was just to send an email or make a call to get a quick answer.

    Even though I didn’t work, the 8 months gave me great experience that I will benefit from my whole life. Contacting SHC is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life/career, so I want to thank SHC and the San Diego Gulls organization for making it possible for me to fulfill my dream.

    About two and a half years ago I embraced the idea if playing hockey in the states. For me it had always been a dream hard to pursue and a vision that I would never be able to do. Where should I start? What does it take to play hockey in the states? How do I come in touch with teams and at what level should I play in?

    Then I came across Scandinavian Hockey Consulting from a friend. Their main idea is to help Scandinavian players to North America and be there as a mentor for you while your over there. For me, it was like hitting the jackpot; that was exactly what I was searching for. I started talking to SHC and we started a working together.

    One year later I was there, standing on the ice in Texas for our first game. From the start all the way until that moment, they helped me prepare for everything. And it was so worth it.

    During the year you get a lot of consultation every young athlete could ask for when their over in the states, far from your comfort zone.

    It’s off season now and a crazy and awesome year has flown by. I can by far say it has been the best year of my life. The experience, seeing another culture, meeting new friends that you will carry with you together is invaluable and I can’t say anything more that THANK YOU! I recommend SHC for everyone that is aiming for doing the same thing that I did. Don’t be afraid, I can assure you that you won’t regret it!

SHC is the safest, most comfortable, company you can get help from if you want to reach your dram of playing hockey in North America.

    Personally, it started with my dad finding SHC on the internet. They came to watch me play a game vs. Sodertälje and I met with their staff after the game. Right after that I knew I wanted to play hockey in the US.

    I don’t regret my decision for one second. I ended up with an amazing billet family and had a great team behind me, led by a fantastic coach named Marcus Baxter.

    I had never though everything would go so smooth, and it was all because of SHC’s awesome help and guidance. They were always available to answer questions or help with minor problems along the road.

    I had the best year of my life in North America. I made friends for life that will always welcome me to their homes. I could not have asked for more. I am so thankful for how SHC took care of me and gave me the opportunity to live my dream.

    I recommend SHC to 110% for anyone who wants to take their hockey to the next level.

    During seven months, I have got to experience some of what every hockey player dream of as a kid, to be a hockey player full time.

    To be able to breath hockey 24/7, play in front of crazy fans screaming your name, sign the young kids jerseys after the games – it is a very cool experience! Seven years ago, I visited the US for the first time. Since then I have always been fascinated by the country and its culture. It was really no doubt, I wanted to move to the US and play hockey – thanks to SHC this dream became reality. I have been through a unique adventure, an adventure I don’t regret for a second that I decided to try.

    I have experienced the real America. As a tourist, you easily get the impression that USA is just cities like LA, NYA, or Miami. After living as an american for seven months, for me the US is instead cities like McCall Idaho, Cheyenne Wyoming, or Missoula Montana. Thanks to SHC I have visited states that I never even knew existed before (Wyoming for example…haha).

    Thanks for all help SHC!

    I had a dream of playing hockey in the US for a long time. After having done research online trying to find alternatives I decided to contact Scandinavian Hockey. I knew there players who had already been working with SHC, and they all spoke highly of the company. Now, I am sitting here two years later doing the same.

    I have had a fantastic hockey season both on and off the ice. Everyone welcomed and took care of me in a way that it hard to describe. Everything from coaches and teammates to my billet family was great.

    The team I came to was defending champions of the AJHL (now called EHL). We had high expectations on us. Unfortunately, we could not really live up to those expectations but still played very well despite our loss in OT in the playoffs.

    More than 10 players from our team got offers from colleges. Personally, I got an offer from Fredonia State University where I will continue my career next season.

    SHC’s help has been invaluable. From the first contact, they were with me and helped out with absolutely everything. They put every player in focus, and will do what is the best for you. Their knowledge and connections in North America are nothing short of amazing. Without SHC I would not have been where I am today, getting an opportunity to get an education while continuing to play the game I love. I am forever grateful for the help I have gotten.

    Thank you SHC!

    To play hockey in the U.S have always been a dream for me. Thanks to SHC my dream came true.

    I thought that I never would experience junior hockey in the U.S because it was too much work to do all by myself, but with the help from SHC it was almost too easy.

    I wanted to change team after half of the last season. I called SHC’s representative in the US, and one week later everything was set with my new team. It is always easy to contact SHC and they have an answer for your question.

    It is the best year of my life so far.

    Scandinavian Hockey Consulting opened a lot of new paths for my hockey career and life. First they helped me play junior hockey in Texas, which was an awesome experience, 4000 loud fans at the home games. Furthermore, they helped me to get into contact with collages so I could play hockey at a great level and simultaneously get a great education.
    Scandinavian hockey also shows great professionalism when there players are in need of help. Playing hockey when everything is going great is easy. However, during tough times it is important that you have people you can count on; you can count on Scandinavian Hockey Consulting!

    This year was one of the best in my hockey time, playing in the USHL was great. It’s one of the best leagues I ever played in. I developed so much as a played but also as a person. The staff was really good and the teammates are awesome. I learned so much this year, and it’s a year I always will remember.

    Scandinavian Hockey Consulting was a big help for me too get this chance in the US and I’m greatfull for the help. But SHC does so much more than finding you a team, also the way they help is great. You can always call their staff in the US them and talk if there is problem ore if there is something on you mind. They always want the best for you are also there for if there is something they think that you need to improve to be a better player. They want you to be the best you can be, and are doing everything they can to help you make that happen.

    I can’t say anything bad about Scandinavian Hockey Consulting, because they helped me to make a dream come true!!

    Both me as a parent and Oliver as a player have had extremely good help from Scandinavian Hockey Consulting when deciding to take the step to USA to play hockey.

    The consulting and help we got before the trip and during the season in the US have been invaluable and many mistakes made by others have been avoided. We have also had great help for the upcoming season. Which way is the best to go? What league should we focus on? What team?

    Everything have goon smooth and with no problems during the first season has been great. Oliver loved it in Texas and every time we had questions or concerns we could turn into SHC to get help, advice and guidance.

    Being Swedish, you realize quickly that hockey over there is so much larger and is based of so many more teams, leagues, and divisions that myself as a parent had no clue about before we took the step. With help from SHC, and Oliver, I have started to understand everything and the endless possibilities and options a player have o reach his goals.

    The fact a young man decides to take the step to leave his safe environment at home in Sweden is exciting and developing in many aspects. For Oliver, this has meant a lot for his development both as a person and as a hockey player. He has also been able to open doors to new exciting possibilities for this season.

    We are looking forward to another season in North America!

    Ever since I started playing hockey I had a dream of playing in the US. In 2012 SHC made that dream come true. A former coach of mine told me to give them a call and after that they were really quick with finding me a suitable team. I played for the Helena Bighorns in the AWHL and the team were a perfect fit for me. Before, during and after my trip SHC stood by my side, helping me with everything from the process of getting my visa to everyday problems in USA. The experience is priceless.

    I had the best year of my life there and made friends for a lifetime. I’m not saying that things won’t get tough at times because they will, but you can always count on SHC to be there for you whatever it is. I am so happy and grateful that they made me take the leap to play North American hockey, it has truly been the time of my life.

    We first came across Scandinavian Hockey Consulting when he joined the College Hockey Sweden Camp. During the camp he was given the possibility to take the next step in his hockey career. Moving to North America was an easy choice. Studying at the same time playing hockey at this level and adapting to new surroundings may be tough. As a parent, the possibility to get support and the possibility for our son to talk to a Swedish SHC representative on the same continent felt very comfortable.

    We really want to thank SHC for the opportunity they gave my son to find a team and all support during his year in Alaska.

    The first year also rewarded him with a Division I College Commitment. Without the contacts and the expertise from SHC he would never have been given this opportunity. Scandinavian Hockey Consulting’s ability to assist in widely different topics has been invaluable.

    Working with SHC has been one of the best choices we have made each season when considering how to build our team.

    We were introduced to SHC in 2009. Since then, we have signed a player every year but one. In 2010, we received two players from SHC, using our only two import spots available to sign with them.

    Quite simply, we would not be where we are today without SHC. They are honest, realistic, and most importantly, they know North American hockey.

    We look forward to continuing our great relationship with SHC.”

    I got in touch with Scandinavian hockey consulting for the first time in spring 2011. I had a friend that told me about this company so I contacted them and that might have been the best decision of my life.
 The contact I had in Sweden was good because they fix the stuff for you and you don’t have to think too much about it, so the whole process went by really fast for me, from contact them to founding a team for me.
 When I was in USA I had a good contact with the guys there, it feels good to have people there that you can talk with if you have a bad day and also good days so that’s a really god thing.

    I was playing for Flint Jr Generals this season in the NA3HL and it was the best thing i have done in my life. 
From day one to the last day I enjoy it and I head great teammates and great people in the organization. 
When I first came over the biggest thing that was different for me was how serious the club was, we had practice from 3-9 Monday-Friday and two games every weekend. We started every practice with film and that helped me a lot, because you notice things you never thought of and that help you later in the games. 
Then we skated for 1, 5 hour and finished off with gym, I also played over 50 games compared to 25, that I played the year before.

    The family I lived with was great, they always asked how the hockey was going and also came to almost every home game so they were very supporting and that helps you along the way.
    Of course I had some rough times but you must fight you through those times because it’s only going to make you stronger after.

    I came into contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting in August of 2012 after having participated in their College Hockey Sweden camp. I have always been interested in playing hockey in the US, but you always have to travel there so early and go to tryouts so I never did anything about it.

    The camp in July changed everything, and it made it obvious to me that I wanted to play in the US after speaking with coaches from college and junior teams which was really cool! After being helped by SHC with how everything worked and how to become a successful player in North America, I moved over in the beginning of September to play in the NAHL with Brookings Blizzard. The team had just moved from Alexandria, and it was an exciting experience for the town to support the team. Hockey was so much more fun in the US, and the first home game was a shock to me. The entire arena was boiling and the fans were crazy!

    I got to experience a lot this season, and after a back injury my production took a hit. I was traded to Aberdeen which was an hour and a half away, and at the moment it felt really crappy and I had no desire to go there. However, by having Scandinavian Hockey Consulting there to speak with and who could help me though the tough times was great. It felt weird being traded, since that doesn’t happen in Sweden.

    Once I came to Aberdeen, our coach got fired after three games and a new one came in which became a new beginning. We had better speed in practices and did much more video work before and after games. A serious coach came in and took over the team that had lost 14 games in a row. With the new coach, we were the best team in the league the last 15 games which was so much fun. I am excited to go back to Aberdeen again, and I am thankful for how SHC has helped me though a season that included a little bit of everything. Even if you get traded and have to move, it can be a GREAT thing, and nothing you have to scared about.

    I want to recommend everyone to move over to the US if you have ever had that desire because it is such a different experience from Sweden. To move over with SHC was a perfect fit for me, and I am certain many others will feel the same.

    I first came in contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting in May 2009. Their Swedish staff and I spoke daily and they explained to me that moving to the US to play hockey was the right thing to do for me. Ever since I decided to come over and play here I have not regretted it. Sure some days are tough, and yes at times you want give up and move back to all the safe and comfortable stuff back home. But SHC truly helped me through the tough days, and overall – to move here has been the best decision of my life!

    What makes this organization so good and successful is that they are for sure taking care of you and will help you with whatever you need help with; and there is plenty of stuff you do not know about that SHC does. To have staff from SHC in both Sweden and USA is what make it so great and helpful. They also have the necessary connections for you to move on in hockey. Through their network with professional teams and college programs, today I have more options to move on with my hockey career than I would have had otherwise.

    I am forever grateful for what SHC did for my life and hockey career. Thank you, everyone involved with SHC, for giving me the time of my life!

    I first came in contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting in October 2010. It had always been a dream of mine to play in the US and SHC made that dream come true. Even though I got injured mid season and missed great parts of the regular season SHC was there through the rehabilitation, checking up on me, and still found the perfect fit for me during my year in the US.

    I ended up playing for the Arizona Redhawks in the Western States Hockey League. The skill level of the league was a very good fit for me and so was the team I was placed in. The coach had a lot of confidence in me and he played me a lot all year, in all situations. As I felt the confidence of my coach, my own confidence got a boost and I had a great year both on and off the ice.

    The fact that SHC has representatives in both Sweden and the US makes everything so much easier. I felt very comfortable from the day I got in contact with SHC until the day I left the US. Their Swedish representative did a really good job of explaining everything to me that I needed to know. Everything from helping me get my Visa to just answering the everyday regular questions that I had. Their US representative basically knows everything that’s worth knowing about playing and living in the US. If there was one question he could not answer he still knew who you should ask.

    If you want to play hockey in the US I definitely recommend you to contact SHC. Thanks to them I spent 8 amazing months in the US learning, growing and experiencing new things not only as a hockey player but as a human being as well. Thank you SHC for fulfilling my dream and giving me an amazing hockey season that I will never forget.

    It all started with a great coincidence, last summer I attended Scandinavian Hockey Consulting’s camp, which was in my hometown Norrtälje. My friend and me saw a poster about this “College Hockey Sweden” camp and we said “why not”. So we went to the camp and I really liked it, however after the camp I contacted them and asked if they had anything available. It all went really fast, it’s hard to believe that the camp ended late July and a month after that I was in Oregon as a player for the Southern Oregon Spartans.

    The year I had in Oregon was amazing, I got to experience so much not only hockey and to have SHC behind me supporting and advising couldn’t be better. The year had its ups and downs but they were always there so make sure I was doing the right thing and to even be able to meet up with staff from the organization while in the States only made it better!

    I want to thank the SHC for this year and for giving me all the support that I possibly needed!

    My motivation for my season at the EJHL was to get the best possible opportunity to keep playing in the USA and combine hockey with my studies.
 After I contacted SHC they quickly found a suitable club for me. During the whole of my stay I always felt I could turn to SHC to get advice both regarding my hockey and purely practical issues.

    After I had received several offers from different colleges it was good to know someone who was familiar with the American college world and who could also guide me to the right decision.

    I contacted Scandinavian Hockey Consulting about a year ago as I was very interested to move to North American and play hockey. At that point, I was not sure what I wanted and I hesitated to take the step, and nothing happened. I spoke to SHC several times throughout the year and was close to make the move many times, but I do not even know why I did not decide to move to the US earlier.

    SHC were very professional and let me take my time, and did not push me at all to make a decision. We kept close contact during the season, and between Christmas and New Years I decided I wanted to make the move to North America – and I wanted to move right away to finish this season there. As soon as I told SHC I wanted to move, they started working for me to find a team and league that fit me and my development. I realized it would be hard to find a team in the middle of the season, but it went surprisingly fast for SHC to find two alternatives for me.

    I was very happy with the options SHC gave me, and already a week later I was on a plane to Pittsburgh. SHC were very diligent in arranging everything as smooth as fast as possible so that I would not miss any more of the season than necessary, and so that I would get into things as soon as possible.

    Of course, I had very many questions before I took the step since I did not know what I got myself into. SHC was of great help and could answer those questions based on their own personal experiences, as well as other players’ experiences.

    Once on site in Pittsburgh, I live with an unbelievable host family, which has huge impact on things as I spend a lot of time with them and they always support me. They have been at every home game I played, and even drove 2.5h to Cleveland to see me play, which shows how engaged they are.

    I got in touch with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting for the first time during spring of 2010. I was recommended to contact them by my good friend Johan Skinnars, and was very interested in playing hockey in North America. I think it is very valuable when everyone on SHC’s staff – both in Sweden and the US – have played junior and college hockey and really know what they are talking about. The fact that SHC has Swedish personnel available in the US throughout the entire season is extremely helpful.

    The staff in Sweden is doing a great job before you take off, and of course I stay in touch when them too – but having Swedish staff here in the United States that knows exactly what you go through and has done the same thing themselves is great. SHC has a great network both before and after you start your trip.

    I have played for the Fresno Monsters in the NAHL. It was been a great learning experience in several ways. California might not be a hockey hotbed, but there is a huge buzz and excitement around the team in the city, and this is a great place to live. The game events cannot even be compared to any Swedish league, it is so much better here. We average 3000 fans per game! All the traveling is also a fantastic experience, learning the culture, adapt to new things.

    I can guarantee that you learn more from a year over here than you do in several years in the safe and comfortable environment at home. Getting new friends, live in a family, experiences on and off the ice that you can never get anywhere else.

    If you have the desire, go for it!

    I have always wanted to play hockey in the US, but I didn’t know anything about all the different junior leagues over there. A friend told me about how Scandinavian Hockey Consulting had helped him the year before so I followed him and did the same thing.

    After the season SHC presented an option to play for the St. Louis jr Blues, NA3HL. I didn’t know anything about the team or the league so they told me about it. I accepted the offer and it ended up even better than I thought. We won the regular season with a 43-3-2 record. It didn’t take that long time to adjust to the transatlantic game with the smaller rink. The biggest difference is it’s faster here and more shots from any angle.

    I didn’t only grow as a goalie on the ice, but also as a person over the year. For example it’s a different culture you have to get used to, you are living with a family you have never met before while your real family and friends lives on another part of the earth. Even my language developed each day, it didn’t take many weeks until I started think and dream in English.

    Having SHC staff in both Sweden and USA made all the practical matters very easy, from the day I contacted them until the day I came back after the season. Thank you SHC and the whole St Louis jr Blues organization for making this year one of my best and a year I will never forget!

    Scandinavian Hockey Consulting has helped me with so much. Upon contacting them about playing in North America, it took them less than two weeks to find me a team to play for. I got placed on an NAHL team. The hockey in that league was way better than I thought it would be. I really felt that SHC located me a team at a good level for me. So there’s no doubt that SHC will find you a team where you’re able to play and that fits you the most.

    My first year, I had a great time and developed a lot both as a player and person. I think that the hockey overseas is a complete different kind of game. For me as a goalie I had to change my game a lot. Different angles because of the smaller rink, more shots, and rougher in front of the net. But it’s definitely worth it, you get to play better hockey.

    One thing that made it so much easier to move to the United States was having SHC’s Swedish staff on site here in North America. It was great as I met with him several times throughout the year and we spoke on the phone every week.

    Not only has Scandinavian Hockey Consulting helped me find teams in the US, through their network of people they know personally, they have connected me with some of the best goaltending coaches in the United States, Kelly Gee. Kelly is probably the best goalie coach I’ve had so far.

    I am really thankful for what SHC has done. I would not be where I am as a hockey player today without them – and the help I have gotten along the way is so great!

    Because of SHC, I now get to play in the highest junior league in North America as they were instrumental in getting me drafted in USHL, and get a NCAA DI Scholarship.

    Any hockey player who wants to play hockey in the United States should contact Scandinavian Hockey Consulting. They know their stuff so well, and after I have been living here myself for some time and getting to know more people, I realize how well respected SHC’s staff is and how many teams rely on them for getting good players!

    “Thank you SHC for your help with everything!”

    Playing hockey in North America have always been a dream of mine. But the whole systems of different leagues, divisions and levels can all be very confusing and it’s a complicated process to manage on your own.

    It was in the end of 2009 that I found out about Scandinavian Hockey Consulting. I sent SHC an mail where I described my situation and how I wanted to play hockey in the US. Their Swedish rep responded, and just a few days later we had a signed agreement. Their staff really took the time to really get to knowing me, not just as a hockey player, but like a person as well; all this to find me the perfect fit.

    You have to sign and have a lot of papers in order to get in to the US. SHC was very helpful with the whole process of setting up a meeting at the American Embassy, getting a VISA etc. They also made sure that I was prepared both mentally and physically. They helped me to get in touch with a NHL-trainer that formed me a training schedule to follow during the summer.

    Things didn’t really work out as I hoped and I got cut from my first team. I can’t describe the importance of having SHC’s Swedish Staff on site here in the US when that happened. I was disappointed and I had no clue what to do. But SHC worked hard to find me a new team as fast as possible, and just one day later I had a new team address.

    The fact that SHC have representatives in both Sweden and America is for me the most valuable privilege. To be able to talk Swedish to someone who understand what you are going trough and how things work can be very calming and I still have weekly contact with SHC.

    To email SHC is the best choice I’ve ever made.

    I was referred to Scandinavian Hockey Consulting by a good friend (Anton Olsson) who had already lived in Texas for a year and loved it. He told me that SHC are serious and worked hard to get their clients a perfect place to play, and it was all true. I spoke to their Swedish staff basically every day from the 28th of December, and he found out all information, statistics, and references that they could find about me and teams in North America that needed players. It was a stressful period due to the January Transfer Deadline for import players. It took SHC four days to find me a team, the Bradford Rattlers.

    There was never doubt when I decided to move across the pond since I have wanted to do that for a long time, and always dreamt about playing hockey in this side of the Atlantic. So when I called SHC the first time and they asked when I wanted to move, I said as soon as possible! Their staff in Sweden and in the US gave me every piece of information regarding how to go about things such as travel insurance, immigration papers, etc.

    It took about one week from that I made the phone call to SHC until I sat on the plane to Toronto and I had no expectations except doing my best so I can take the step to the next level next season.
    I have been placed in a family that really is hockey interested, and I live here with two other players. The dad in the family runs the speaker booth during our games! If there is ever anything we need, we just have to let the family know and it is taken care of until the next day. The food is perfect, and we are not talking about crappy food. It is great!

    This is the best decision I made in my entire life and I do not regret anything. The only thing I wish I would have done differently is to make that phone call to SHC earlier!
    Huge thank you to the work SHC put into helping me and get me over as quick as they did. I am deeply thankful!

    I first came in contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting during the summer of 2011. For some years a dream of mine had been to play hockey in the US. After announcing my plans I got contacted by Scandinavian Hockey Consulting and they offered to help me. I was reluctant at first since I had already set up a couple of tryouts on my own. But after having the great pleasure of speaking to both their Swedish Staff and the Swedish Representative stationed in the US I was reluctant no more.

    Throughout the whole year, from start to finish Scandinavian Hockey Consulting has been by my side at all times. Their knowledge of junior hockey in the US is nothing but superb! It doesn’t matter if you play in at the highest or lowest level of junior hockey in the US. If the league gets college scouts attending the games and are actively putting players in D1 or D3 programs, it’s a league worth playing in!

    During my year in the US I played in the EJHL. It was truly an amazing experience that I have benefited from greatly. I was surprised how professional the coaches and staff were, they kept a high standard throughout the whole year. The EJHL is located on the east coast and gets a great college exposure, it’s a great league for whatever level of college hockey anybody is aiming for.
    If you are looking for a great opportunity to play hockey in the US and fulfill a dream of playing college hockey, Scandinavian Hockey Consulting is a great choice. Because of their help, I got an NCAA DI Scholarship. I owe them a great deal!

    What has impressed me the most about Scandinavian Hockey Consulting is the personal relationship the company has had with me. They began working hard to find me a team as early as last winter, and kept me updated on any progress throughout the way, so that I always knew what was going on. SHC helped me through the entire process and placed me on the appropriate level for me – so that I could develop in the best possible way.

    The fact that the company has representatives in the United States has made the move from Sweden to USA much easier than it otherwise would have been. Having someone “on site” that can help out with day-to-day things and who can answer any questions about hockey or about life in the USA in general has made a big difference. The personal contact with SHC’s USA representatives has been extremely valuable and helpful – both as a player and as a person.

    Scandinavian Hockey Consulting made it possible for me to fulfill a childhood dream. To be able to move to the United States and play ice hockey full time is something I wanted to do forever. I am extremely thankful for what Scandinavian Hockey Consulting has done for me and can strongly recommend SHC to any young hockey player who wants to get the experience of a lifetime.

    My experience with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting has been really good!

    I first got in contact with SHC when I still played in Sweden, and he helped me find different teams and schools in the States, and we sat down together to figure out what my family and I wanted to do. Since the SHC staff in Sweden and US has been great resources, and they have helped me with any questions I had, and it feels good knowing that you always have someone you can call, no matter what! They both have a good knowledge, and experience with hockey in North America, and they really know what they are talking about. It feels good knowing that you can talk to a guy who has been there, and done all the things you are about to do.

    My hockey experience has been awesome. I went to a Prep School on the East Coast last year, and I ended up playing D1 NCAA Hockey this year. Its been great both school wise and hockey wise, I have grown not only as player, but also as a student and human. You gain a lot of experience being away from home.

    Finally I would like to thank SHC for this, and let them know that I couldn’t have done this without them! It takes a lot of hard work, but SHC gave me the opportunity to start this journey.
    If you want to begin your own journey, whether it is in the US or in any other country, I would definitely recommend that you contact SHC and let them help.

    For a young man wanting to play junior hockey in North America, the contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting is an absolute necessity. If you, as a parent, would try to find a feasible solution for your child, it will with no exceptions lead to a number of problems; and bad decisions that lead to significant issues will be made.

    It is also very clear and noticeable that the teams in North America has a great sense of trust and reliability for Scandinavian Hockey Consulting, both in regards to how they request their players – but also in the close relationship the SHC-staff has with the coaches and GM´s.

    Additionally, it is easy getting into contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting, as there are representatives in Sweden. The player will also find it easy to get help on site, as they have Swedish staff there.

    For Mathias, this is an enormous experience which will make him grow as a person as he will have to deal with both great and hard times.

    The Arizona Redhawks were extremely fortunate to be associated with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting this season. They watched our team play and found us a goalie who has not only been a asset on the ice, but a true gentleman off the ice.

    The homework SHC did and the guidance they provided my player and his family with everything – from all the legal documents for the United States to personal contact – made the transition work very well for all parties involved.

    We can’t wait for our next SHC-player!!

    The first thing that happened when I got in contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting is that we had a personal meeting in Leksand – where I lived at the time – with me, my parents, and SHC’s staff in Sweden. Already after that first meeting – and after talking to one of their previous clients, Johan Skinnars – I was sure I wanted to move to North America and continue my hockey career.

    SHC kept me updated all the time on how the process went on finding me a team to play for. When a good team for me was found, they helped me with visa papers and all other necessary paperwork to make it as easy as possible for me. I even got assistance in finding cheap and good flights to the US!

    Once I arrived in the United States and the season started, everything has been even better and more exciting than I expected. Sure, sometimes there have been tough times – but in those situations it has really helped that SHC’s Swedish staff in the US never is more than just a phone call away. SHC has also came with invaluable help and advice throughout the year, and made me realize that over here one have to give 100% at all times to earn ice time.

    One thing that is very noticeable over here is how thankful everyone is for SHC’s work to locate fitting players to their teams; and I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to be one of their clients. This will forever be one of my coolest and most exciting adventures of my life, and I sincerely recommend SHC to any player who wants an experience similar to mine.

    I am currently playing in the USHL, and have had the opportunity to speak with and get help from SHC on site here in the United States, which has been a great help in translating to hockey and life over here. To have someone Swedish here in the US makes everything so much easier.

    Scandinavian Hockey Consulting is a professional organization that knows what it takes to make it, and are a great help along the whole way.

    Since I was hired as the Head Coach/GM of the Wilkes Barre Scranton Knights in the Atlantic Junior Hockey League, I have had great success with my imports.

    USA Hockey limits me on my imports to only having two (2). Starting my third season with the Knights, Scandinavian Hockey Consulting has been second to none, in sending me the very best imports in their group. During the season, their staff is readily available by phone, email and text to discuss and help with the players they have sent. I will continue to utilize Scandinavian Hockey Consulting to fill my import roster spots, as the imports they have sent helped in winning the AJHL President’s Cup in 2012-2013.

    Thanks for all you have done for the Knights!!

    I first got in contact with SHC in February 2011. Already after the first phone call with SHC I had a really good feeling about going to America, with the help of SHC.
After I decided that i was going to America it took SHC about one or two days to find me a team. The whole process was very easy.

    I got to play hockey in Texas, a place totally different from cold Sweden. I got put in a great billet family with two other players.

    They made me feel like home right away. That’s one thing I never had to worry about, all the teammates, coaches and people around the team made me feel very welcome and they helped me a lot with the a lot of different things.

    The hockey was very different from what I was used to back home. But I definitely think that it’s more fun to play on small rinks. I’ve never played in a team where everybody was so close to each other. That’s a thing a always will remember.

    When I was in America I didn’t talk so often with SHC, but it’s great that you have the knowledge that they are just one phone call away. It’s good to know that when you want to ask about small things.
    Moving to America was the best decision I’ve ever made. I wish I did this earlier so I could play one more year of junior hockey.

    Without the help from SHC I would never been able to have the time of my life.
    Thank you!

    I came into contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting after a J20 Superelit game against Leksand. I had no knowledge about junior hockey in the US, and North America overall. As a result, I had a ton of questions that needed answers and I had daily contact with SHC from day one.

    The help I got from them is something I am thankful for today. I consider my decision to move to the US and play hockey the best time in my life, and something I will have with me for a lifetime.

    When I was there, some days were tougher than others, but overall life in the US was very exciting and fun. If there was any small problem I had, I could call SHC and it was taken care of immediately.

    SHC placed me on a team they felt would fit me based on my hockey experience and personality, and they were 100% accurate. I played in a league that was great for my development, and in a city that was perfect for me. I got to know people I will be in touch with the rest of my life and is looking forward to meeting again.

    I wish I was younger and could experience junior hockey in the US again. The American mentality in regards to ice hockey is something that fit me very well, and my strengths as a player really came to good use.

    “Scandinavian Hockey Consulting is a perfect help for you if you want to play on the other side of the ocean. I wanted to, and SHC helped me with very much during the process, to a very reasonable cost. Since the company has Swedish staff in two places, Sweden and the United States, the help to find teams was both easy and simple. The personnel on the Swedish side basically had daily contact with me and were the link to the staff stationed in the US – who located several possible teams to play for.

    I feel that the work they did was extraordinary, and I had a number of offers to choose from.

    There are a many things that need to be worked out before one can enter the country, USA; immigration papers, money, and in my case Academic Information and paperwork to the university. SHC’s staff have this experience, and their advice and help was of great help.

    The first time in the US, I had much contact with the Swedish staff in North America. But as time goes, one get adjusted to life in the US and become more self-sufficient. However, it is perfect to have someone to call, on site in the United States, in case something happens. Therefore, it is perfect that SHC are stationed in the US as well.

    I am very happy that I decided to take a year in North America. This year would not have been possible without the big help that SHC has been.”

    From the very first time I spoke with Scandinavian Hockey they had a very nice and professional attitude. When they in detail could explain how they could help me for my best development. In my case, I was very late because of another contract that fell through. Yet they could in a very short time help me find a team that suited my needs.

    It was a very cool feeling to come across when nothing is what you’re used to with a new language, small rinks, media and crazy fans. I had a very enjoyable season with experiences that I will never forget, the whole atmosphere to eat sleep and breathe hockey every day and the commitment around games from people is something I will always have with me. But also my family that I was staying with made everything so easy and gave me all I needed to feel safe and comfortable.

    Just come over and do the thing you love the most every day and be able to spend all the time you want to just play hockey have to be every hockey player’s dream. Coming over to America is an incredible opportunity to develop as a player and also as a person. For me it was an adventure that has given me an incredible life experience where I learned so many new things and met so many wonderful people.

    I have always had a dream of moving to North America and play hockey. I am so happy I got in touch with Scandinavian Hockey consulting and how they helped me to the best year of my life. SHC has helped me SO much!

    My year in Oregon was insanely fun. To be able to spend a year with Americans and experience their friendliness is the absolutely best thing a young hockey player can do.

    The hockey itself had its ups and downs. I have very high expectations on myself, and when things don’t go my way I tend to think negatively and feel that I am a useless hockey player. However, the support SHC gave me on site in the US was tremendous. I could contact their Swedish staff on site whenever I wanted, and help getting confident and feeling better was always just one phone call away.
SHC knows what they are doing as the entire staff have played competitive hockey for a long time.

    I am extremely happy I get the chance to live my dream, and will never forget this year. Thank you SHC so much for the best year of my life.

From day one, the people in Sweden and the ones in the United States have worked impressively hard with everything from helping me get the correct VISA to finding a perfect team to play for.

    I was in daily contact with the SHC staff in Sweden before I left, which was really nice as I always knew what was going on. To have their Swedish staff in the United State has been an incredible help since they have lived and played here, and have experience and know what you are going through.

    I’ve always had a dream of playing Hockey in North America but i didn’t know how to do to get in contact with teams and coaches over there. After the 2010-11 season i didnt really know what i should do i was considering to go to the J-20 Super Elite League or go to division 1. Then I got in contact with SHC and it was not a hard decision for me to make at all, I felt that playing in North America would give me more opportunities than playing back home. When I had decided to come over and play it just took them a few weeks to find me a team that fitted me and my type of play.

    My first year have been awesome i have had so much fun both on and off the ice and i really feel that i have developed both on and off the ice. Obviously the Hockey is a lot different over here but i had a really good coach that helped me to adapt to the North American style and i feel that im much more of a complete player today than one year ago. Off the ice i have been living with a billet family which have been great they have been so nice and they get you all the meals which makes it a lot easier to focus 100 percent on Hockey.

    I really appreciate everything SHC have done for me they help you with everything from finding a team to advice about Visa applications, if its something you wonder about you can always ask them, they know a lot about the hockey in North America and has pretty much been in the same shoes you are. Another thing that makes thing easier is that they are also located in North America which makes things a lot easier, if you have trouble with something or just need advice they are just one phone call away.

    If you want to play in North America you should definitely contact SHC they will find you a team that need your type of player and put you in the right conditions to succeed.

To play hockey in the US has always been a dream for me and SHC really helped me make that dream come true!

    Times are going to be rough and you will have your ups and downs, whether it´s feeling home sick or if hockey isn’t going how you want it to you will get thru it, with support from SHC, and in the end of the day it´s going to be worth it.

    I came in contact with SHC in June of 2012 because I wanted to leave Sweden and try to play in the states. My brother played "over there" a couple of years ago and had a really bad experience so the fact that SHC got me a team quickly and set everything up was very professionally done.

    They got me a couple of teams to choose from and we talked it over together to find the best solution for me and I ended up in the Flint Jr. Generals. I talked to both Kelley Cronk the GM and the head coach before i left Sweden and they were very helpful and made sure I would get picked up from the airport and so on.

    I had without a doubt the best and most fun season of my career so far. I got to play about 50 games and the seriousness of the organization pushed me to preform my best and develop my game all over the ice. The billet house I lived in with 3 of my teammates was phenomenal, our billet mom always had a bunch of food and the house was great. Every day we worked out, practiced and hung out and some of the kids on the team became friends for the rest of my life.

    I just want to express my gratitude towards the SHC for all the help they have provided for me before, throughout and even after the season. Never did I feel left out or like just a name on a piece of paper, I could always get help if needed and all my expectations I had before I came to Flint came true. Thank you SHC, I’m truly grateful for my season and I wish you all the best!

    Everything started with that I wanted to try something new and exciting in my hockey career so I decided to move to North America and contact Scandinavian Hockey Consulting. All help I got from SHC with finding a team was very professional and made me feel very comfortable. After SHC gave me a few teams to choose from, I decided to play fro St. Louis Jr Blues, partly because it’s abig city and also because they are always a top team competing for the NA3HL Championship.

    The season started pretty bad for me as the hockey is different and you have to think the game in a new way. It is much more physical and you have to keep your head up the entire time, so I have learned both to receive and give hits. I remember the beginning of the season when we played 3 on 3 in one zone, and I got beat by a player because I was watching the puck. Coach blows the whistle and screams “How f***ing tall are you?” and I respond “Very tall” and he says “Then f***ing hit somebody”. When coach said that, I realized that the hockey mentality in North America is completely different so my next shift I hit a guy with an open ice hit and coach came up to me laughing and said “good job”.

    The season got better and better for me as the season went on, and our team won almost every game we played. We finished the regular season with only 3 losses in 48 games. However, in the playoffs we lost to a team we had beaten 8 times in regular season. It was very sad to lose like that because we had a really good team that could have competed for the championship and even the national Championship. Throughout the season I had good contact with Scandinavian Hockey Consulting and they were there for me every time I needed something or had any questions.

    The entire experience with playing in the US is something I will never regret. I have gotten friends that I will have for a lifetime, and I will be in touch with the billet family I lived with in the future!

    When i decided to use SHC I was not sure what to expect. It proved to be one of the best decisions I ever made. The ability to always have someone to talk to, both in Sweden and US is awesome. Things don’t always go as you think they will, and in those cases the contact with SHC is very comforting. My year in the US was one of the best in my life so far, it was great to develop and grow both on and off the ice!
