This Saturday sees special event, Armed Forces Night in the Storm Shelter.

Newly signed, gold medal winner, #49 Bendan Brooks will also be icing his debut game with the team for tonight’s game!
Storm will face the Belfast Giants for the first time this season later today, and with a recent achievement of five home wins, look to take the two points and their sixth home win in a row. With Giants currently standing third place in the EIHL table with 16 points, it will be a challenging and competitive game, not one to be missed!
New signings include Canadian, Francis Beauvillier and American forward Hunter Bishop – both with AHL experience. With netminder, Jackson Whistle now at Sheffield, Giants have ex Edinburgh Capitals netminder, Tyler Beskorowany between the pipes as their number one, with Murphy and Dickson as backups.
Giants recently announced the return of Canadian defenceman, Kevin Raine. Former Storm player, Paul Swindlehurst will also be with the Giants during their visit to the Storm Shelter, so make sure you give him a warm welcome.
One to Watch: Tyler Beskorowany.
