The star goalkeeper of the NHL sweats up to 10 kilograms in one match. Sweden’s World Cup goalkeeper Lars Johansson hesitated when asked about the conditions in Tampere.
Sweden’s World Cup goalkeeper Lars Johansson comments on the temperature at the Nokia Arena in Tampere. Many puck people have said that it is really hot in the hall, and the temperature affects the ice conditions as well.
– Of course it’s hot here, but it’s also hot in Scandinavia in our home hall (in Gothenburg, ed. note), Johansson, who represents Frölunda at club level, told Expressen.
So how much does a goalkeeper sweat during a match? NHL information states that, for example, the goalkeeper of the Florida Panthers, Sergei Bobrovsky, loses up to 10 kilograms during a match due to sweating.
On the other hand, Andrei Vasilevsky, the top goaltender who excelled in the NHL for a long time, previously said that he sweats five to ten kilograms in one match.
– Haha, I don’t sweat that much. I drink a lot during matches and also refuel during breaks. Two to three liters go easily in one matchbox. In the evening before I go to bed, I drink another liter, Johansson says about taking care of my fluid balance.
Sweden have won all their matches so far in the current World Cup.
It last celebrated the World Championships in 2018, but has not reached a World Cup medal since then.
