MANCHESTER STORM V DUNDEE STARS – WEDNESDAY 20TH FEBRUARY, 19:30 FACE-OFF, PLANET ICE ALTRINCHAM.
Join us for a mid-week game at the Storm Shelter, as Dundee make the trip down to Altrincham for a 19:30 face-off.
Manchester Storm recently signed British defenceman Sam Zajac and forward, Liam Morris on two-way contracts for the remainder of the 2018/19 season. Expect to see Morris icing this evening, as he makes his EIHL debut. The Scottsman is on a two-way contract with NIHL side, Basingstoke Bison, currently on 18 points across 17 games. Icing again tonight is Zajac, who made his debut with the Storm last weekend.
Returning to tonight’s line-up is captain, Dane Byers. Having been sidelined with a concussion, Evan Richardson will not be icing tonight.
The Stars have recently confirmed the unfortunate news that Canadian forward François Bouchard, has been ruled out of the remaining games of the season due to an injury.
The last time the two teams met in Altrincham, the Storm won 4-3 in overtime, three of those goals from former Stars defenceman – Riley Stadel. There are currently three points between the teams, as they both compete in tonight’s crucial game on the run up to playoffs. Come and show your support, for what will be the final meeting between the two teams in Altrincham this season.
The players will be doing a meet and greet in Jack’s Bar after the game. Seeing as it’s half term, why not pop in with the family? This is also the perfect opportunity to meet the new players. Bring something that can be signed. This month’s programme is available in Manchester Storm Store and has photos throughout, which can be signed.
