The Flames will return to Elite league action when they cap off training camp with a pair of challenge matches against Coventry Blaze. The Patton Conference champions will visit Blaze on Saturday, August 31st for a 7pm puck drop before returning home on Sunday, September 1st for a 6pm official start to the Spectrum based campaign.
“There is actually a fair bit of history with Coventry going all the way back to when we were both British National League clubs,” explained Paul Dixon.
“They have been a very successful side over the years, including winning the Elite League title on more than one occasion, so they have a track record that we aim for.”
“Last season they had a very skilled, fast skating team. In terms of head to head there was not much to choose and we finished the table within about 4 or 5 points of each other.”
“We are going to see them a lot between Cup and League play so although these games won’t count for points, there is a lot of relevancy in going head to head for our first chance to see how we measure up this season.”
The Elite League and Cup campaign will get underway September 7th and 8th, with complete fixtures available in the coming weeks.
