The Bulldogs champs Kevin Macierzynski and Matt Fraser tested the new console game in detail. And both were thrilled by the design. “The charts are awesome, and I do look pretty good”, Feldkirch-native Macierzynski grins broadley while playing the game.

Matt Fraser being the best player

DEC new signing Matt Fraser holds a prominent position in the new game. The NHL18 rating is listing the 27 year old Canadian as the best player of the entire league. “That’s funny. When guys in the room are saying that they have gotten pretty good, I just have to let them know that I am the best player in the league”, Fraser chuckles and puts the controller away.

Players and fans alike are excited about the local Erste Bank Eishockey Liga being available on the console now. Matt Fraser loves the game: “It’s pretty cool. You can see what it looks like to be on a videogame, and I’m sure someday a lot of these guys will be able to tell their kids about it.”
