The SHL star's new love: A relative to the royal family
Victor Söderström impresses in Brynäs and predicts a brilliant future in the NHL.
Besides, he has found love:
Hedvig Blom, 21, - cousin to Princess Estelle.
- It's great fun and she makes me in high spirits, says Söderström.
During the season the slopes have been recorded for 14 points in SHL and during Saturday night he scored a goal in the 2-5 loss away against Färjestad.
A nice gift for girlfriend Hedvig Blom, who turned 21 the same day.
- Yes, we did celebrate her a little this morning, but no more. We took the real celebration a week ago when it was a break, so it fit well, says Söderström.
The relationship provides an insight into a completely different world than the traditional one for a hockey player. Hedvig Blom is the niece of Prince Daniel and thus the cousin of Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar.
As eleven-year-old Hedvig Blom was a flower girl at Victoria's and Daniel's wedding and handed over the rings to the crown princess couple at the altar. Söderström thinks it is fun, but has not put much thought into the girlfriend's family ties.
- There is nothing to think about. Everyone is themselves and they are normal people, everyone is very kind people. Hedvig and I have known each other for about three years and she gets me in high spirits, so it's great fun, he says.
