Växjö skipper Reddox not surprised by Lord success
Växjö Lakers captain, Liam Reddox, says it's not surprising that Cardiff coach, Andrew Lord, has been a success at the club.
The two men played together at Oklahoma City Barons in the AHL during the 2010-2011 season while Reddox was part of the Edmonton Oilers organization.
But the 31-year-old, who will not be whitening the Swedes at the Champions League match due to an injury, knew that Lord was going to become a success.
"I played with" Lordo "in Oklahoma City in 2011 while I was in the Edmonton Oilers, I can not remember how long I was. I played with him, "he says.
"But he left a lasting impression and while he was one of the new guys on the team, he showed a lot of leadership and you knew that he would go to the battle for you.
"He worked extremely hard and I'm not surprised to see him coach at Cardiff and have the success he's had by winning the league."
Reddox led the Swedes to the semifinals last year and already qualified for the knockout stages of this year's competition.
He is disappointed to have missed the trip to Wales, but is eager to participate in the return match at Vida Arena next week.
And he hopes traveling Devils fans will make as much noise as Braehead fans when they visited Växjö two years ago.
He added: "Unfortunately, I have to sit down because of an injury that I picked up at the training camp and we just felt that this week would be ideal for recover
"I really hope to be back for the second game when they come to our rink next week and I hope there will be lots of fans coming.
"The clips I saw from them in Davos, they look like a fun group with a lot of passion, a bit like the Braehead Clan fans when they came to Växjö a few days ago. years.
"After seeing Cardiff's first result against Davos, you have an idea of them, but the way they bounced and beat them at home, that shows that they have a lot of character and fight
"They also have a lot of pride and we expect a tough game from them, but that will be very fun to play.
