Storhamar looking for CHL form

Storhamar looking for CHL form

Markus Nisius21 Sep 2015Markus Nisius»

This year’s still young CHL season saw one huge surprise, the Storhamar Dragons. But their day to day business in the Norwegian GET-Ligaen does not look too bright in the early stages.


The season for Hamar did not start too good. In their opening night they hosted Valerenga Oslo at the Hamar OL-Amfi rink and the team that defeated Sparta Prague once and Servette Geneva twice in the CHL even failed to score a single goal. Oslo could grab all 3 points through a pair of 3rd period goals by Jonas Oppoyen and Filip Gunnarsson.

Four days later though, travelling to their local rivals from Lillehammer, they could put on a show and show why they kept writing headlines in Europe this summer. With 10-1 they blasted their opponents away. Alexander Reichenberg, Mikael Zettergren and Scott Hotham managed to score twice, while Hampus Gustafsson added 4 assists. From here they could have taken the season by storm, but another bump was waiting for them on the road.

In Lorenskog the Dragons could gain momentum with an early lead through Hampus Gustafsson, but Lorenskog fought back in the second and third period. Robin Dahlstrom, Joacim Sundelius and Stefan Espeland turned the game around for the home team. Martin Ronnild managed to bring Storhamar back within reach again, but they came up short in the end.

Those three games left Storhamar with only 3 points out of 3 games, which is definitely not enough. The other CHL team could meanwhile celebrate 3 wins in as many games. Besides victories in Asker (4-3 OT) and Manglerud (7-1), the Stavanger Oilers also entertained their home crowd with a double digit win beating Sparta Sarpsborg 10-2. The most successful scorer for Stavanger so far has been Josh Soares with 8 points (2 goals, 6 assists), who also leads the league. The Oilers will try to match that as they are hosting Lillehammer in their next game, while Hamar will try to bounce back at home against Stjernen, a team currently in 5th place with 2 wins and a loss.
