DAUPHIN, MB – Dauphin Kings 20 year old D-man Ludvig (Luddi) Adamsen is already liked a lot by his new team and it appears he’s getting looks from all over the world.
Recently the Copenhagen Denmark product had an article written about himself in his homeland.
You can read the english version of the article below!
Ludvig Adamsen has found a new club.
He still plays in the second highest level of Junior Hockey in the Canadian junior leagues and now represents the Dauphin Kings in the historical Manitoba Junior Hockey League.
Adamsen reached 16 games and made a good impression with the Bonnyville Pontiacs of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, before he was traded to Dauphin. His agent, Eustace King from O2K Management sees great potential in Adamsen, who already may move up in ECHL in the North American pro game as soon as in the spring.
– “In the spring, what happens is that NHL teams expand their team and this is also spreading into the AHL and further down to the ECHL. Therefore ECHL need young and hungry players at the end of the season, and there have already been requests for Ludvig from several clubs in the ECHL. They saw him at the U20 World Cup last season and were impressed”, says King to Faceoff.dk.
– “He’s big, he’s strong and he did well at the U20 World Championships. At the same time, he has developed fine “offensive skills”. He skates well and he is doing well in the physical game. It is my goal for him to send him to clubs where he constantly continues to develop, play a lot and learn to be consistent over many games”, said Eustace King.
– “It’s been good for Ludvig to come to North America. It’s really good for the development of a young “European” player to come over here – also in the perspective that they might return later to Europe after a few seasons in the professional game in North America. It has made a player like Ludvig tougher”, says Eustace King, who talks highly of Adamsen and of his great, great work ethic.
– “All his coaches have praised him as he really has the WILL to become a professional hockey player. He is still a “raw” player who still need to be sharpened, and is a good example of a “late bloomer”. I’m not saying that he ends up playing in the NHL, but he can go far in his career if he gets the right coaches. If he develops in the right way, he can play professional for many years. Where it is, I can not predict yet”, says the agent.
Last night Ludvig Adamsen played for the Dauphin Kings and lost in overtime 3-2 against the Virden Oil Capitals. The Dane has eight matches and two points in MJHL.
