Sebastian Vidmar On A Mission

Sebastian Vidmar put up 25 points after joining the Lone Star Brahmas in early November last season. In 2014 he will be back for his first full campaign with the Brahmas.

The big forward from Malmo Sweden struggled out of the gate after arriving in North Texas, going 14 games without cracking the scoring sheet despite some strong play in the offensive zone. The scoring drought took its toll on Vidmar. “There was a lot of frustration and pressure that I put on myself during that time, said Vidmar. “It’s easy saying that it will loosen up with time and I should just keep playing my game, but in reality that frustration finds its way in, one way or another.” Sebastian had history to look to for encouragement; he knew he could put points on the board. In 2012/13 he was second in goals scored in the Swedish J20 SuperElit League. “I kept going at it, and when the first point came I just kept going, not loosening up and still playing my game. A big reason why I got on the right track is also because of Dan (Wildfong) and Jeff (Potter) still playing me and giving me minutes on the ice, another coach might have just sent me on my way.”

“Fans will see me doing my best to be as painful for our opponent’s defense as possible,”
