Rick Ravey taking time out
It is with a heavy heart that we say â€˜see you soonâ€™ to another great servant in Rick Ravey.
Rick has been another player that we would have liked to have back on the roster for this season but he has decided to take time away from the sport and we all wish him well.
When I first came back to the Hawks Rick was playing as a forward and he certainly made his presence known. He continued to improve year on year and is one of those guys that would do literally anything and everything for his team. He started to play in D and took to the new role like he had been playing there all is life and was a massive part of what we achieved last year.
He had a big part to play on this team and all the players will be sorry to see him go. He is a absolute gem of a person, a real pleasure to have around and he knows that the door is always open whenever he wants to return.
He puts 110% into everything he does on and off the ice and everyone associated with the club would like to wish him all the best for his future….
