Wojtek Wolski Returns To His Roots

from Adam Steils of IIHF.com,

“I have never had the chance to play in Poland because I grew up in Canada. I felt that this may be the only opportunity for me to play in Poland so I didn't want to pass it up,” he said.

It’s been an adjustment for the 26-year-old. Going from the capital of the U.S. to a Polish town of approximately 43,000 souls has been an interesting move to say the least.

“It’s a very big difference from living in any of the cities I have played in. It has taken some time to get used to but is very peaceful and reminds me of being up north somewhere in Ontario,” said Wolski.

Wolski’s arrival to Sanok caused quite a stir in a country not necessarily known for hockey. He landed at the airport to a gaggle of reporters and TV crews, but since then the buzz has died down and he has been able to focus on hockey and at the same time soak up some of the European lifestyle.

“It certainly is a different lifestyle across Europe compared to North America. Here people work to live, not live to work. Family is truly the most important thing.”
