I've been researching some of the lesser known names coming to Vancouver for the Olympic hockey tournament, and came across Mr. Sven Felski of Germany. The 35 year old native of Berlin will be making his second Olympic appearance, having played in the '06 Games. The 5'10" 167 pound right winger failed to notch a point in Torino yet has played 129 career international matches for Germany scoring 20 goals with 23 assists.
Felski is currently in his eighteenth consecutive season with the Berlin Polar Bears, beginning his career in 1992/93 as a seventen year old. Felski is the franchise's second highest career scorer with 184 goals and 475 points over 651 games and he's been a German Elite League All-star on five different occaisons.
Throughout his extensive stint with the Polar Bears, Felski has been a team mate to the likes of, Jiri Dopita, Andrei Lomakin, Peter Lee, Tomas Steen, Mike Bullard, Alexander Godynyuk, John Chabot, Olaf Kolzig, Erik Cole and currently Jeff Friesen. An interesting, lengthy career which is winding down with a trip to Vancouver next month.
