Hiirikoski's injury in the Swedish Championship final between Luleå and Brynäs raised questions about conditions and safety for women's hockey players in Sweden. It took 27 minutes before an ambulance was on the scene.

According to Oscar Alsenfelt, the new sports director in the SDHL for the season, the issue was raised as recently as the league's last board meeting.

"I have started a process of taking stock of all situations in the SHL clubs. How much they pay, how many ambulances are available and so on. So even before this happened to Jenni yesterday, this has been a point we will take further," he says.

"Doesn't feel quite right in my stomach"

In the SHL, there are requirements for ambulances at matches. In the SDHL or hockeyallsvenskan there is not.

This means that luleå's men in the next quarter-final on home ice on Wednesday, unlike the women's team, will have an ambulance present from the start.

"Of course, we would like to have the same conditions as SHL. But it's a cost issue. I still think we are moving in the right direction. Then, of course, it doesn't feel quite right in my stomach that there is an ambulance on site two days later, says Alsenfelt.
