    Beloved community member Daniel "Floor17" Anderzon has passed away

    FLOU ❤️


    As many of you already know our beloved friend and teammate, 
Daniel Anderzon - @Floor17, got hospitalized earlier this year after doctors through an MRI discovered a tumour in his brain.
    Prior to the discovery Daniel had been struggling with major seizures of migraine over the course of a month, forcing him to take a step back from gaming, NHL and the community.


    As doctors found out the tumour Wouldn't be operable, they put him on radiation therapy earlier this spring. Since then his body has been fighting off the cancer bravely - at times seeing progress with the tumour shrinking in size, at times being near collapse due to the tumour and treatment itself.
    This took its toll on Daniel. Earlier this week his body simply couldn't take anymore and we received the news that Daniel has passed away, surrounded by his family.


    As someone who's been around the community from day one, being one of the most well known players around, a pioneer for the entire scene for almost decade and a friend to so many, we would like to highlight who Daniel really was as a person. Having the opportunity to not only see the gamertag Floorbandy king or PSN-ID Floor17, but to really see the person behind it, is something we'll always treasure and the true value of being a part of Northern Stars through all these years.


    Gaming was what brought us together and what held us together.
    Ever since day one, 10 years ago, Daniel never really changed that much. Daniel were always Daniel, regardless if you got to know him at 16 or 26. Always humble, always a team player. Always the one wanting to play the support roles when the rest of us fooled around in other games, always the one taking a step back to help someone else taking three steps forward. Always ready to praise an opponent when beaten fair and square. It really defined him as a person. He always held his composure, both when playing and arguing, and has always been one of the major cornerstones in our team. Not only as a player, but as a leader in his own way and most importantly a friend to literally everyone who has ever come and gone throughout the years. The answer to how a team with cHIIMEERa and ma0niii as captains can last for a decade is as simple as Floor17. The youngest one of us, but yet the one who always kept our feet on the ground. We've always laughed at how he's always been like the grumpy but wise old man we've always needed.

    It's admirable how much he knew about players and people in our community. If anyone ever would deserve one of those top fan badges for anything, it'd be Daniel for our NHL-community. He always loved to see and hear about people's opinions, with or without joining the discussion, and always loved to keep track on players in every team at NHLGamer and loved to watch all of the hardcore VS-players take it out on each other in tournaments and GWC. It's probably pretty common to easily get a bit salty and grow tired of a scene once you've been on top of that stage yourself, but for Daniel it was always a pleasure to watch others succeed just as much as being a part of it himself.


    It feels surreal to write this text, as we're still in shock as it haven't really been able to sunk in yet. The constant in form of Daniel that's always been there for us when it comes down to NHL and Northern Stars is no more, it feels like we've lost our younger brother and this community has surely lost one of their brightest stars. 


    We're thankful for every moment spent playing, talking and hanging out with you IRL throughout the years. You're a proof that anyone who says video games isn't a social thing and that video games can't be as fulfilling and connective as sports is wrong. You're missed and will never be forgotten.

    We love you. @ma0niii & @cHIIMEERa

    A word from @Kenu, NHLGamer:

    On behalf of NHLGamer, I would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and teammates of Daniel in this tragic loss. Daniel was a beloved member of the community since day one and participated in all of our ECL seasons to date, racking up 199 games as a skater (123+163=286) and 2 games between the pipes (2W, 88,88%, 0,99 GAA, 1 SO). He was featured in one of our Hidden Gems articles during the ECL 5 season - you can read it here

    UPDATE:
    We set up a fundraiser with @cHIIMEERa for Daniel's family to help with the expenses related to his passing and the funeral.

    Hard to find the words... I'd like to extend my deepest condolences to all of Daniels family and friends ❤️ 

    I am truly sorry for your loss, Mattias and Viktor. While the rest of our NHL community will mourn his passing with heavy hearts, none more than you and the rest of NOS who had the chance to enjoy his company on (and off) the virtual ice for the better part of a decade. While it must have pained you to do so, I thank you both for writing this beautiful text. I feel like it gave me one last chance to get to know the man behind the controller just a little bit better. I'll always be thankful for that.

    Rest in peace floorbandy_king, you will be missed ❤️

    ❤!

    Rest in peace brother

    Never forgotten

     

    ----

     

    Så många finaler, så många bataljer genom åren - men ALLTID en värdig motståndare, på isen och vid sidan av planen, oavsett resultat.

    Har inte spelat otroligt mycket MED dig, men den lilla tiden jag var i Northern Stars, strökvällar här och där, så var du alltid kamratlig och genomgående genuin. 

    Livet är otroligt orättvist - och jag beklagar sorgen till Floors närstående och lagkamrater. 

    Spelare och människor som Floor växer inte på träd - och det här hålet är omöjligt att fylla. 

    Vila i frid.. ❤

    I can’t really say anything about Daniel other than that some people are taken away way too young, my deepest condolences for the family and friends of Daniel.

    If there is a time for a hat off, this is it.

    Rest in piece Daniel.

    He was the one who gave me a chance to play for a NOS. Thankfully about that opportunity and chance to play with him for awhile. Such a nice guy and he will not be forgotten.

    Rest in peace Floor❤️

    A staple in the community for so long. I feel privileged to have had the chance to play a season with you and to meet you in real life as well, and can definitely second what Viktor and Mattias wrote.

    Rest in peace, friend. 💚

    Very very sad news.  I want to show My respect and tell a Little bit. Every time i played him in a 1 on 1 game against him he Always showed such a fair play and positive text. I have learned a lot from him. He even sent me a messege when i qualified for the gwc congrationlated me even though we didnt knew eachother. This say a lot about who he was and we should all try to be more of how Daniel was. Life is Hard and unfair. Rip Daniel

    Sometimes life makes you really stop to think. This is one of those moments.  It is unfair, life. Unfair that some are taken away too young. This is why we should always appreciate the ones who are close to us. Appreciate life, not just take it as granted. 

     

    I did not knew Floor personally, but people who knew him have already shared us how great guy he was. May there be strenght for his close ones in these times of grief.

    Rest in peace Daniel, rest in peace...

    Daniel was the best both on and off the ice. That you had to go at such early age is truly heartbreaking and unfair. I will forever cherish playing against and with you in NHL (and Trials). Always classy ... You were the best! Now show the big man in heaven who's boss

    Rest in peace floor you will be missed ❤️

    Rest in Peace Daniel. I was shocked to learn that he has passed away. I had the honor to play with Floor in the early Eashl years. One of the greatest team players I have played with. You will forever be missed.

    As someone whose sibling had to fight through the same illness as he did it's devastating to see how unlucky him and his family was. My sister fortunately had a successful surgery to remove her tumor and to this day I'm scared thinking about what could have happened back then.
     
    It's a terrible situation to be in as a family member - even harder to fight the fight yourself. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends and teammates. Rest in Peace, Daniel. #retire17
