954 matches, 898 of which are for the Vienna capitals.
With a total of 1,890 penalty minutes – the equivalent of 31.5 hours – it’s the most in EBEL/ICE hockey league history.
36 goals and 129 assists.
Two championship titles with the capitals of Vienna.
That’s how I read the impressive numbers of Phil Lacos, who with a semi-final defeat to DC against EC Red Bull Salzburg (Match Report >>>He cuts off his skis.
‘Resigning in front of empty seats’ was out of the question for the 41-year-old defender. Last summer, Lacos said he wanted to “finish his career ahead of the caps fans at the Erst Bank Arena”.
A decent farewell show in front of 3,750 spectators
In front of 3,750 fans at the Steffl Arena, the Vienna assistant captain finally gave a farewell performance and was able to enjoy the last minute of the Capitals’ entire season on the ice.
Hull’s spokesman, Jerry Berger, praised the defensive giant, who not only played for the top hats in 2008/09 and played for FC Innsbruck that season. Meanwhile, the hall turned upside down again and made a lot of noise. And then sounded, the last siren for a brilliant career.
Warm gestures from your old and former comrades in Vienna
Former Capitals players Peter Schneider, Ali Wukowitz and Benjamin Nessner warmly greeted Lakos, as former national teammates and old teammates said goodbye to the 41-year-old. “The good time is over now,” the Viennese said after his last game in his football career.
“I also handed out a final check, and it was fun as always,” Lacus laughs.
His number four will be hanging on the roof of the hall soon
Phil Lacuse will not have gone to the Steffl Arena for the last time. Before the start of next season, his fourth number, which capitals will not allocate in the future, will be hung on the roof of the hall.
In addition, the veteran player will not miss an occasional match out of his caps – even if only as a spectator.
And now, enjoy the hockey retirement you deserve, Phil!
