Soilwork To Help NY Islanders Celebrate Military Appreciation Day


Soilwork have announced that they will be helping the professional hockey team the New York Islanders celebrate Military Appreciation Day on Monday, November 14th at the Barclays Center.

Bjorn "Speed" Strid had the following to say "I started playing hockey when I was six and stopped when I was sixteen. I played in a local team called Landskrona, which also featured current NHL athletes.

"I was chosen among three other players from my club to be a part of Skåne Team in 1994, which featured the best players from the southern region of Sweden. Slowly after that I picked up the guitar and was blown away by the kick playing music gave me. I left my hockey career behind me and focused 100 % on music but always looked back.

"Hockey has always been a big part of my life and while living in Toronto for five years, I played a lot of 'shinny' - beer league hockey. I also got the chance to get to know Nikolay Kulemin."
