All About Malmö, Host City For The WJC

from Risto Pakarinen at IIHF.com,

Gunnar Svensson has done it all in hockey. Before becoming an agent in 1996, he was a player, coach, and a general manager. He became the GM of Malmö in 1995, and still calls the host city of the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship his home.

Malmö’s hockey past is a chequered one, with the local team going up and down in the divisions, often with creative financial planning in the background. Latest version of that was having their import players live in Copenhagen, only a bridge away from Malmö, so they would get preferential tax treatment. 

But, Svensson says, Malmö is a hockey town, too.
