"When I realized that it would not be Luleå, I told my agent that I want to try something new. An adventure. A sporting challenge," Niklas Olausson explains in an extensive interview with Hockeysverige.se and adds: "I got all that in Visp. It feels really inspiring."
Together with his old friend Linus Klasen, who also played for Luleå in the past season, the 35-year-old forward has set himself a clear goal for his time with EHC Visp, and it is not just about having fun:
Five years after he left EHC Biel, Olausson is thus aiming at the National League once again: "I still think I could assert myself well in the top league in Switzerland and it would be incredibly cool to be able to do that with Visp." Although he only has a one-year deal with EHC Visp for now, Olausson seems to be planning ahead already.
