Your Go Goodwins Manchester Storm are delighted to announce the signing of Lukas Lundvald for the 2019/20 season.
A newcomer to the league in 2017, Lundvald joins from league rivals, the Dundee Stars.
The speedy Danish forward spent all of his junior and early parts of his professional career in his hometown of Odense, before moving across Denmark to represent Herlev Eagles in 2015. After two years in eastern Denmark, with Herlev, Lundvald was poached by local rivals the Gentofte Stars. During the 2017/18 season, Lundvald swapped Gentofte Stars for Dundee, leaving Denmark with 53 points (23G 30A) in 143 appearances.
Lundvald made an immediate impression in Dundee, as his debut campaign caught the eye of several potential EIHL suitors. The forward was able to rack up with 29 points (13G 16A) in only 27 games and was awarded a contract extension before the conclusion of the 2017-18 season.
In 2018-19, Lundvald impressed yet again, racking up 43 points (19G 24A) in his 56 EIHL appearances. The forward will be looking to build upon his consistent two seasons in the EIHL, which have totalled 72 points (32G 40A) in 83 games.
The Dane will be arriving in Manchester for his third EIHL season and Head Coach, Ryan Finnerty had this to say about his latest recruit:
“Lukas is a player that we have been able to watch a lot over the last few seasons. I really like his energy and the tenacity he brings to the game.
“We had some good conversations about what is expected in Manchester and how I want him to play. I believe he can round-out his game this year and take it up a level.
“I am really excited to work with Lukas this coming season and I am sure the Storm fans will love watching him play.”
Age: 24 years old
