WFC 2018

More young players who left their mark on this WFC

After the list of the 4 players that left their mark on this WFC, we asked who you would add to the list. So here it is: a longer list of young players who impressed during this WFC! We excluded the players from the previous list.

Peteris Trekse (LAT)

The one to top this list, Peteris Trekse, was mentioned more times than any other player in this list. Born in 1999, the 19-year old tall forward plays for Latvian club FK Lekrings. 1+6 points was his final score this WFC (with an important one against Czech Republic in the group stage). Looking at the fierce competition Latvia faced during the tournament, it’s nothing but impressive for this 19-year old talent.

Klavs Jansons (LAT)

Another massive talent from Latvian origin who undoubtedly will be of great value in solidifying his national team for the future. His debut WFC was nothing but impressive with 3+1 points.

Michal Dudovic (SVK)

We wrote extensively about Michal Dudovic and published a 2-part interview with him (part 1 | part 2) with this massive talent. On his second WFC, the 19-year old who plays for SV Wiler-Ersigen, made 21 points and he was one of the reasons why Slovakia blazed through the group stage so easily. 

The Gartner twins (AUS)

Tomas Gartner
Daniel Gartner

Australia is lucky. They got one massive talent and another one for free. Tomas and Daniel Gartner had their WFC debut 2 years ago but are totally killing it. In total, the twins stood for 18 points (8 for Tomas, 10 for Daniel) and greatly contributed to the fact Australia, for the first time in history, made it to the playoffs. 

Ken Pahn (EST)

Estonia had a relatively bleak presence during the WFC finishing in tenth place. One player, however, to stand out in the team was 22-year old Ken Pahn. Impressively, the forward scored 11 goals in his first-ever WFC appearance.

Juin Jie Ng (SIN)

Juin Jie Ng’s international floorball journey only started 1 year ago when he represented his country during the Asia-Oceania Cup and took him to Prague this year. The 21-year old, who plays for Victoria Schools, scored 4 goals on his first-ever WFC!

Alexander Rinefalk (THA)

Another very impressive performance from the Thai forward Alexander Rinefalk with 20 points this WFC (6+14). The player, who plays for the Swedish SSL team Örebro,  played again a crucial role for his team.

Special thanks to everybody who commented, especially Tomas Rambousek.
