Manchester Storm v Dundee Stars – Saturday 7th September 19:00 at Planet Ice Altrincham

Tonight sees the Storm’s season opening game at home against The Dundee Stars. Following four preseason games, the squad are ready to kick start the EIHL 2019/20 season! 

Let’s pack the shelter and support the boys, wear the colours and bring the noise!

The Visitors

Omar Pacha and assistant coach, Matt Marquardt have been busy signing new players and bringing back a few familiar faces this Summer. New faces include: defenceman, Jagger Dirk, Reilly O’Connor, forwards, Egils Kalns and netminder Alex Leclerc. 

The Stars skated away with a 7-2 win over Scottish rivals, the Glasgow Clan. Following last weekend’s success, they will be looking for a road win, so expect a highly competitive game. 

The team will be without Egils Kalns this evening, as he serves a game suspension for checking to the head. 

Ones to watch: Kevin Dufour and Colton Kroeker

Manchester Storm
