In terms of sport, it is also ideal: We have a dedicated team that can play very good and successful ice hockey.

Oliver Pilloni, General Manager of the EC-KAC: “Nick Petersen has continuously proven over the past three years that he is a player who can make the proverbial difference in our league. It fits in ideally with the path we have taken, namely to provide a squad consisting largely of local cracks, which is upgraded with a few import players who, however, have high quality play. I would also like to underline that Nick Petersen has made a very positive development in our organization towards becoming a more universal player: Apart from the strong scoring values, he is now doing a lot of work backwards, which has also made him fit better and better into our basic system . “
