A Day With the Finnish Hockey Legend ‘Mörkö’ and How the Legend Was Born
That’s the word that has been on the lips of the Finnish people for a week.
I attempt to explain.
Those who followed the ice hockey world championship know that the Finnish player number 12, whose last name is Anttila, scored the decisive goals in the playoffs in Slovakia between May 23 and 25—against Sweden and Russia—and then sealed the world champion victory with two goals in the final game against Canada on Sunday, May 26.
His name is Marko Anttila. He is 34 years old, from Lempäälä, a small municipality near Tampere in central Finland. He is known as “Mörkö.”
He’s been known by that nickname in hockey circles for the past few years. But hardly anyone has taken notice. (Anttila is a player in Jokerit ice hockey team, which plays in the professional Kontinental Hockey League KHL.)
But that started changing in Slovakia when Anttila scored even with Sweden, and the commentator, Antero Mertaranta, started repeating a rhetorical question on the live TV broadcast: “Löikö Mörko sisään?”
Did the Groke score a goal?
Yes. He did.
