Historic award: Damian Clara is a star in Sweden

Damian Clara is the biggest jewel in South Tyrolean ice hockey. This is underlined by an award that the goalie from Reischach recently received.

These are exciting times that Damian Clara is experiencing. Last summer, the goalie was selected by the Anaheim Ducks in the second round of the NHL draft, but he will play the season in the second Swedish league, where the 19-year-old will mature in peace at Brynäs IF. But there is no sign of calm: Clara has caused a sensation so far this season and achieved a catch rate of 34 percent in 91,3 regular season games - an extremely strong figure.

The fact that Clara is very well received in Sweden is also proven by an award that he has now received. The Guldgallret Trophy is awarded every year to the best youth player of the season in the Swedish second division - and this year the choice fell on Reischacher.

No foreigner had ever achieved this before him

Remarkable: Before Clara, no foreign player had ever managed to win the prize. Since the award was introduced in 2010, the trophy has only gone to Swedish cracks - until Damian Clara came along.

In the past, some well-known players have received the Guldgallret Trophy, such as William Karlsson, who won the NHL title with the Vegas Golden Knights last season.
