In addition, young talents under Wang Tubidret's patronage will have access to his expertise. We've been in dialogue with Endre about this for a long time. “We're bringing in a guy with raw work ability who is strong at a professional level in a lot of things,” says Storhamar coach Kenneth Gabrielsen.

– We were together to win the Vipers' first title in the 2017/18 season. Despite his young age, Endre has already managed to be a head coach at Elitserien, as well as an assistant coach to the winningest and best coach in Europe, Ole Gustav Gjekstad. This is the scoop that will really help in the development of club, team and individual players,” says Kenneth Gabrielsen.
