Växjö Vipers’ club icon and captain Filip Kjellsson has announced his retirement at the age of 31.
In the season to come, 2017/18 quarterfinalists Växjö Vipers will have to make it without their veteran Filip Kjellsson, who’ve announced his retirement to SMP. The 31-year old has been a part of the team for a long time, from their journey up to the Swedish Super League and to the superfinals in 2017.
Not only has Kjellsson brought experience and leadership to the otherwise somewhat young team, he’s also gifted with one of the league’s best wrists – his technique is something not many players can match. With his creative moves, he’s found several jaw-dropping assists and dekes throughout his career.
