Eishockey Legende Michael Wolf auf dem Weg zum  vierten DEL Titel | Breaking the Ice


Michi Wolf. Goalscorer, captain, legend. He chose to announce that he was retiring
at the end of this season. It’s like a farewell tour
he’d like to cap with a championship. MICHAEL WOLF
EHC RED BULL MUNICH We’ll see when it really is over. I think I immediately started
with ice hockey. I can’t recall doing anything else.
It’s been a good ride. In my youth I was never the best player. I’d say I was more in the bottom half. In the end I still managed
to make it pretty high up. Wolf! There! There’s Wolf. I think young players in Germany, all forwards,
have seen videos of Michi Wolf. They see him battle
and work for the team. It’s not just the goals.
I mean, he’s scored over 300. But there’s so much more
that Wolfi does. He’s just an amazing person and player and I think we can be really glad
he’s ending his career in Munich. My role is to do exactly that, to perform well each day,
to lead by example. I try to minimize mistakes.
They’re part of ice hockey. Whoever makes the fewest
mistakes wins. So I try to set a good example
each and every day and to show young players
it works that way too. He’s always in great shape. He’s always one of the first to show up. He prepares the same each day,
as he has done thousands of times. As a young player
it’s amazing to watch him, how he enjoys preparing for practice and games like those of us in our 20s. Left side, right-handed shot. Michi Wolf’s signature shot! Munich is my second home.
It’s very different to Füssen. I’m a small-town guy.
I’m still not used to the traffic. My family and friends are here.
I grew up here. I never really left. I’ve felt fine wherever I’ve been,
but Füssen is home. You could maybe just see the castle now,
my second home. But it doesn’t look like it right now. But you can hardly see it
in the background. Sadly, we can’t see it
as one might imagine. -How much is the rent?
-The second-home tax is a bit costly. It’s nothing really,
just a thing on the side. FIRST NATIONAL TEAM GOAL 100TH NATIONAL TEAM APPEARANCE -How many more games left?
-Four regular season games left. -Then crunch time starts.
-Tomorrow? Yes, tomorrow we have… My oh my! Mannheim, in Mannheim.
First versus second. Should be a good game. We’re six points behind.
Four games, with a win it’s possible. Then the end is in sight. Then the end is in sight, yes.
A few more games and then it’s over. -It was clear that was going to happen.
-But… -We’ll come up with something, right?
-We’ll figure out a plan. I think we’ll manage
to pass the time somehow. What stands out
is his incredible will. I think Wolfi is a guy
who’ll seek out new challenges, that’s for sure. I hope that he can really enjoy
these final games. And, most importantly,
that he finishes up without injury. And, I mean,
he likes being here as it is. We all like having him here.
I think him being back here… It’ll enrich everyone’s lives. I do a lot of mountain biking. I think it’s good training
for strength and endurance. I do it for fun, too,
not just as training. I just enjoy cruising around in nature
in the mornings or evenings. I’d say, now that I’m 38 years old, ice hockey has been my life
for over 30 years. I’ve set up my whole life around it. Training, meals, sleep, everything
has revolved around ice hockey. It still means a great deal to me. I wouldn’t want to be without it.
It’ll be an adjustment. ENTRY FOR PLAYERS,
COACHES AND GAME OFFICIALS ONLY MICHI WOLF’S
LAST REGULAR SEASON GAME The greatest thing
I’ve learned from Wolfi is that you should never be satisfied,
no matter how good or bad things are. Never stagnate. Always try to be better,
because then you make the team better. He chose to announce that he was retiring
at the end of this season. It’s like a farewell tour
he’d like to cap with a championship.
