Heinz Ehlers for Euroman February 2022

The talent commits

At just 16 years old Heinz Ehlers went abroad to see how far his hockey skills would take him. Shaped by the hardness of his father and the skating rink in Aalborg he distinguished himself throughout his career as one of the greatest players of his generation. Today he is the coach of the Danish national ice hockey team, which for the first time in history has qualified for the Olympics - and the father of two of the country’s most talented ice hockey players.
