The Spanish Hasek

The Spanish Hasek


Ander Alcaine became the first Spanish-trained player to appear as a professional player in another league when he minded the net of Briançon Diables Rouges.

Alcaine immediately became the starting goalkeeper for the “Red Devils”. The team is coached by Canadian Luciano Basile, who was also Alcaine’s coach with the Spanish national team.


What do you expect from the upcoming 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Division II Group A in Reykjavik?

I would like to go back to Division I. We know it is a difficult task, but I think we are able to do it. It is the first goal. I think it’s difficult for every team, because a World Championship is not like a regular season where you play 50 games and the best team normally finishes in first position. In such a championship there are only five games and everything can happen. I don't remember any championship I have been that was without surprises.
