National League

Sven Lindemann announced the end of his career at the age of 40, after more than 1000 games in the National League.

Future as a head coach for Sven Lindemann?

Lindemann has announced his retirement to the tv channel MySports (news relayed by the Südostschweiz). Already in March, Lindemann, in an interview with the Südostschweiz, estimated that the probability of playing for another season was 10 to 20 percent. In that interview, the veteran also revealed that he wanted to continue working in the world of hockey and that he was already in contact with several clubs.

Over the course of his career, Lindemann suited up for EHC Kloten (13 seasons), EV Zug (four seasons), SCL Tigers (three seasons) and finally SC Rapperwil-Jona Lakers for two seasons for a total of 1034 National League games (446 points) and 136 Swiss League games (105 points), making him one of the twelve players who appeared in more than 1000 National League games.

Lindemann conquered two promotions to the National League: the first one in 2015 with the Tigers and the second one last year with the Lakers. During that season, Lindemann also won the Swiss Cup. Back in the 1997-98 season, the native of Chur won a bronze medal at the World Juniors.
