Tomas Westerlund (Bachelor of Sports Studies) studied the stress, training load and recovery of the players in the international Kontinental Hockey League using Firstbeat Sports and Lifestyle Assessment. The subjects of the study were the players of Jokerit Helsinki. The team travels in several countries and time zones during the season. How does this affect the players? How can the coaching team promote the players’ performance and recovery? Are there individual differences between the players?
“A player has to be an athlete 24 hours a day and seven days a week”, Westerlund notes.
