Hook and Cownie look forward to GB challenge
GB begin their week-long camp in Coventry today (Wednesday) as part of their preparations for the World Championship (Divison 1B) in Zagreb.
Pete Russellâ€™s side will play two games against Poland this weekend, with Saturdayâ€™s match at the National Ice Centre in Nottingham (7:30pm) being followed by the two sides going head-to-head in the Skydome in Coventry on Sunday (5:15pm).
Hook said: â€œIt is fantastic to be part of the squad and I cannot wait to get out on the ice.
â€œI know there is a lot of talent in this squad, so it will be difficult to get into the final 23, but I would love to be on the plane to Croatia.
Cownie said: â€œIt should be a good week and I am looking forward to the camp and to the Poland games.
â€œIt is a great honour to be called up to the menâ€™s squad and I know I will take so much from the next week.
â€œLike Lewis, I think it would be amazing to be part of the final 23 but I know how hard that will be as we have a very talented 28-man squad at the moment.â€
