Graveyard Gossip: Sebastian Vidmar

Sebastian Vidmar was born March 13, 1994, in Malmӧ, Sweden. The 29-year-old is a left-handed shooter who plays on the left wing. He stands at 6’3 and weighs 203 lbs. He played in Sweden until the 2013-14 season when he moved around throughout the USHL playing for different teams. 

From the 2015-16 season to the 2018-19 season, Vidmar was with the NCAA’s Union College. He played one game with the AHL’s Stockton Heat during the 2018-19 season, but didn’t get any recorded stats. With Union College, Sebastian played in 137 games, scored 40 goals, got 63 assists, 70 penalty minutes, and an overall plus/minus rating of 18. He was able to grow with them while maintaining some consistency because he spent so much time with them. Vidmar experienced the same level of rivalry, as well as the same teammates and team chemistry. 

Moving on to the 2019-20 season, Vidmar was now in the ECHL with the Norfolk Admirals. He played 42 games for Norfolk, scoring seven goals and getting 16 assists. He spent 16 minutes in their penalty box and had an overall plus / minus rating of -10. For the next two seasons, he went back to play in Sweden, but came back to America to play for the Adirondack Thunder in the 2021-22 season, and spent the full 2022-23 season with them as well. 

Playing 106 games for Adirondack, Vidmar scored 37 goals, assisted 42, and got 58 penalty minutes. In between his two seasons with the Thunder, he snuck in three games for the Utica Comets in the AHL but didn’t find the scoreboard. This season, he has taken his well-developed ECHL skills and experience to the Savannah Ghost Pirates. So far, he has only played four games, but he’s managed to score one goal and get two PIM. He is a big, strong forward on Savannah’s offensive line, and he’s not afraid to get aggressive and push around his opponents on the ice.
