The deserving center of the national team injured his knee in late October and was said to be out for the rest of the season.
But the recovery has gone faster than expected and Rydahl is in the second chain of Färjestad along with Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson and Michael Lindqvist before today’s meeting with Malmö, the first round of 16 in the best of the three parties.
– The body feels great. I drove as I should have done and I didn’t cheat with anything, he told Värmlands Folkblad last week.
Färjestad finished eighth in the SHL basic series, one place ahead of Malmö.
The match starts at 15.00 on Malmö Beach.
