Pictures From Anton Lander's Timrå Good-Bye

Our good friend Jimmy Hamrin has 143 pictures taken by the outstanding Katarina Olsson during Timrå IK's farewell celebration for Anton Lander and Sebastian Erixon. There are some amazing shots of Lander in the group.

From Jimmy's game report:

It felt at times like a rock concert with all of the expectations before the game and people spontaneously started applauding long before the game began and within a few seconds, everyone in the arena joined in. I was also completely unprepared for the build-up during the player presentations. It was really powerful at times. We are great fans and we have a fantastic arena to create intensity. I got goose bumps all over my body.

Jimmy posted the rosters and game results from the match here, and I have to say, that goal by Lander at 19:59 looks a bit fishy.

Lander and Erixon's friends turned out for them -- Zetterberg, Pääjärvi, Järnkrok -- all played on team Lander/Erixon. The NHL sends players away with awkward press conferences by shocked players and uncomfortable general managers, the SEL sends them off with an all-star celebration. It's an outstanding tradition, and judging by Jimmy's game report, Timrå's made Anton Lander's departure a memorable one.
