Swedish Defenceman Kalle Allner joins the Fire

Cardiff Fire are delighted to announce that 22 year old Swedish defenceman Kalle Allner will be joining the club for the 2017/18 season.

Kalle has a great pedigree in hockey playing in the top Swedish junior leagues the J18 and the J20 Elite representing Nynashamns IF and Huddinge IK.

In 2016/17 season while still a junior player Kalle stepped up to represent Nynashamns senior team in the Swedish Division 2 playing 28 times for the club. Last season Kalle played 31 times for Nynashamns in Division 2 scoring 4 times with 11 assists. Kalle is a strong 2 way defenceman with great offensive upside, good hands and quick feet.

Mark Cuddihy commented “We invited Kalle down for a try-out last Tuesday and we were very impressed. He’s going to be a very good player in our league. We moved quick to secure his signature. He’s a great skater and has a very good skill level. Defenceivly he is really solid and will offer a lot to our offence as well. He hadn’t skated much this summer so it’s frightening to know he’s going to get better than this. He’s in really good shape and I believe Kalle is going to be a fantastic signing for us.
