“Being here nine months, I love the saunas too.”

light steam graphic

USA Hockey article today on player Ryan Lasch who grew up in California, played college hockey in Minnesota, and is now playing for the Lahti Pelicans of the Finnish SM-Liiga.  Ryan not only wore the “golden helmet” as points leader in the league, but is blending well off the ice as well.  Taking in his time in Finland, Ryan relates:  “Maybe the biggest thing about their culture is the sauna. They love their saunas and now naturally, being here nine months, I love the saunas too.”

  1. Saunas really are great, aren’t they? It’s something the Scandinavian countries have known for centuries, and a practice that, thankfully, is slowly making it’s way into American culture. Glad he’s enjoying them!
