Kaltern's new star is immediately causing a sensation

SV Kaltern started the Master Round of the Italian Hockey League with a brilliant victory. The well-known last-minute newcomer was in charge.

He came, saw and met. This old saying from the sports world applies perfectly to Kaltern's last-minute newcomer Joonas Riekkinen. The Finn was presented as a new striker by the Überetscher team on Friday, and the following day he played a key role in the victory in the away game against Alleghe. The 36-year-old scored one goal and prepared two more in the 5-2 win.


Riekkinen, SV Kaltern announced, will replace the injured Teemu Virtala with the pike in January. For the Überetscher, the center is a real luxury player, after all Riekkinen spent around a decade in the highest Finnish league. The veteran was most recently under contract in the German top league with Herforder EV. In the win over Alleghe, another crack came into the limelight: Luca De Dona scored three goals and was the big match winner.

Defeats for Toblach and Brixen

Epiphany brought no luck to the other South Tyrolean teams. In the qualifying round, HC Toblach had to admit defeat to their rivals from Valdifiemme with 2:3, while Brixen lost to Valpellice with 4:7. Eppan had no play in the Master Round.
