39year-old "burns" on his fourth season with the wolves

March 2 2018

On the 5th September, 2018 he celebrates his 40sten birthday. To deal itself time for many of his hockey colleagues at this age bit by bit with the thoughts to hang the ice skates on the nail.

With Landon, briefly Lanny, done, this is not (luckily) the case.

In stopping the likeable wolf forward thinks by no means. Why also. Since 2006 in Germany with some associations under the contract standing attackers who changed in 2015 to the wolves belongs week after week to the achievement bearers in the team and wants to attack as one of the corner pillars in the wolves-storm center also in the coming season again "proverbially" fully.

Lanny done has extended accordingly prematurely by another year in the Wolf's construction.

The lion becomes Wolf

Once in Vernon / British Columbia (Canada) born showing pro, changed in 2015 from the Frankfurt lions from the DEL2 to the same wolves in the second division. From the bank metropolis Frankfurt in the contemplative upper franc after Same – Lanny done has never regretted this step with his family up to the today's time one second.

„ I am very happy here in Same, with the wolves there is not enough nothing. We have many top players in the team, in addition, I estimate a great coach, in the Same very passionate and expert fans. Briefly around. I feel fine in Same simply

so the done whom feels at home meanwhile very much and also has won many new friends beside the ice surface.

Luck clutch, leader and gate hunter in a person

Appealed on his age and whether he has already done thought with regard to a possible career end to himself, a determined NO comes.

I believe a player white when he with the hockey is ready. Then you are mental and physically tired! In this point I have not come yet.

Done estimate the sportsman and person Lanny coach Henry Thom, as well as the wolf board of directors, in person of Thomas Manzei. Wolf number two Manzei sums up it:

Lanny was and is a luck clutch for us. He is as fit as a fiddle, an absolute leader, leads the way always and now shows for 3 years continuously achievements on very much, very much to high level. The competition envies us him for many years.

With done it is as well as proverbially with the wine. The older, the better. 27 gates and 33 presentations in 42 plays are prominent top values – there the young generation can watch only without envy if the technically fitted old hand puts his accents in the wolf offensive.

"Long-term solution" upper franc not impossible

In spite of a valid working paper for the next winter, the focus of done lies first of all on the still running round and the shortly beginning Playoffs. The Canadian with German passport plans a lot, credits his team with something, leaned in his motto:

„ Give to 100% every play and become a Play out of vision champion or master. “

Whether after the season 2018/2019 then really end is as a player, Lanny completely leaves open, topically he wastes about that no thoughts. Still can already become herausgehört that family person Lanny done is not declined together with his wife Johanna, if his guest performance – whether as a player or later in another function – still some years continued in upper franc.

My woman has a job, my both children go here to the kindergarten, absolutely possibly that we also remain after my active career in Same

so Lanny done grinning.

We are glad Lanny done furthermore with the number 18 to see accumulating for our wolves.
