we Start with Lingenhag, to take care of on this day, with the injured striker Benjamin Baumgartner. The 19-year-young Austrian is already far in his Rehabilitation, he sees the light at the end of the tunnel, would the participation of loved ones two days later against Langnau again. For the Coaches this is not but rather still in question.

During the Exercises, the completed Lingenhag with Baumgartner, is always the question of the possible burden and the pain in the foreground. The Exercises are designed to bring Baumgartner on the one hand, getting closer and closer to Comeback, on the other hand, but the Coaches also show how far the player is in his Rehabilitation, really.

working with injured players, part 1: office-Coach Steven Lingenhag and striker Benjamin Baumgartner.

As Lingenhag in a drill Baumgartner after the pain of asking and the player responds with "1, maybe 2", must be able to assess the Coach, whether this is really the truth how they feel on a scale of 1 to 10. Or is it superhuman motivation of impatient after working hungry player?

Because Baumgartner is extremely ambitious. This also shows up an hour later, as he goes for a stress test briefly with teammates on the ice and a couple shots of the exercises completed. He returns with a sinister Mine, immediately rushes to the shower, dresses and trudges with a short "Ciao".

players to watch: What's up with him? One of the colleagues who was with Baumgartner on the ice, clears up and makes for laughs: "Beni is angry because he lost on the ice a bet. He met with an Exercise a single Time into the goal." As head coach of the Christian hears Wohlwend later, this Story, like him: "Beni wants to become better and better. That's exactly why he is so good and so advanced for his age."

But back in the weight room, back to the Exercises and the alleged "1" on the "scale of pain". Has Baumgartner merely fibbing? "So how do I know Beni, he is actually always honest," says Lingenhag.

For him, but is nevertheless clear: The Comeback on the weekend with Games against Langnau and Biel is totally excluded, he shall notify the head coach as well. Baumgartner must wait, therefore, seeks to use a week later, in the last two games before the Playoff.

Decks role as a "brakeman" is a similar Lingenhags. Also, Du Bois wants as quickly as possible to return to the game. "To be patient, I won't learn well," says the player.
