Striker “Barys” Linus, Widell explained the decision to prolong the contract with club for another season.

This year I fell in love with the city, team, I have great partners. Me and my family all liked it. Besides it is always good to stay in the same team for another season. Of course, we have to think a little. But last year, I thought too long! Until November! So I wanted to make a decision early, but took a break for reflection and discussion. And it all slowed down because of the coronavirus again. You have there a quarantine, nobody cared about hockey until may. But I am very happy to sign a new contract and return to the “Barys” for another year. I hope we will be able to achieve the same as last year and go even further in the playoffs — quoted 35-year-old Swede
