After 20 years as a player in Frölunda, Joel Lundqvist's career will soon come to an end.

The 40-year-old will stop playing hockey after this season.

Frölunda announces this via its official website.

- I still love competing and playing hockey, but since last November I have been thinking about whether I should continue playing or not, he says to the club's website and continues:

- There have been a lot of thoughts and emotions to deal with, but I have come to terms with the fact that this will be my last season.
